Re: “Video ‘deeply disturbing,’” the Now, June 2.
I am so furious about this poor homeless woman’s treatment (see video below).
First of all, thank you Jordan and DJ Larkin for bringing attention to this ongoing problem. Please continue to fight for what you believe is right. Thank you also to NightShift Ministries. You do incredible work.
Yes it’s true, there are many elements of crime associated with our streets. But there is also the larger majority of homeless people that do not hurt or bother anyone. If we really stop to think about it there are obviously mental health issues at play.
Would we really want to live on the street even one night if we had a choice?
Shame on all of us in a province where we all have more than we would ever need or want, all the food we can eat and the respect that every Canadian deserves.
Alberta has figured out a way to help the homeless instead of hurting them. Europe has figured out a way to help the homeless and give them hope and a future. There’s no reason why we can’t do the same.
Thank you so much for continuing to cover this extremely important issue. There is a solution if we all just work together to create it.
