The night of the sleepout was bitterly cold and wet Canberra giving the CEOs a taste of sleeping rough. A video showing them, building their cardboard tents was made as the background to a welcoming speech by our National Council, Dr John Falzon who thanked all participants and their supporters and also praised those real life suffering homeless people for their heroism.
