Homeless

Being homeless is often confused with being helpless.  The overwhelming majority of the homeless in Canadian cities are there because of addiction, mental illness or a combination of the two.  They nevertheless possess a dignity that I find compelling, particularly under such harsh conditions. Surely in a country as wealthy as Canada  there exists the compassion and financial resources to remedy this great tragedy.
