On Sunday, October 2, 2016, Joe Roberts and his Push for Change campaign kept their promise and came to Kemptville. His message was passionate, sincere, and dedicated to his cause: “to raise youth homelessness awareness”.
At some point during his walk to Kemptville, Joe reached the 3,000 kms point of his cross Canada “Push For Change” campaign. Those who met and spoke with Joe Roberts, during his visit to Kemptville, all came up with the same words to describe him: “An amazing man to speak to, who is passionate, devoted, and determined to knock on any government level door to get his message across!”
North Grenville Youth Up wish Joe and Marie Roberts all the best as they continue their journey across Ontario and Canada to spread the word that:
“We need to put aside the flimflam, smoke and mirrors, political allegiance, and set up more proactive steps/programs to prevent future youth homelessness”.
This is a serious issue in our country, and, if we don’t wake up soon to address it, in a short period of time, our country will have a youth homelessness issue like in the country to the south of us!
