David has been homeless in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, ever since he lost his wife and his dog, and then his house.

David says Fort McMurray is the best place in Canada to be homeless. Because deposit cans are 25 cents each homeless people can make $100 a day recycling. Thing is, Fort McMurray also has the highest cost of living of any city I have visited in North America.

All David needs is a full belly and some clean clothes. David only had two wishes. He wants his wife back and his dog back.

    It is hard to find a job when you are homeless, companies want an address and a phone number….

    My brother David, where would you be if Carol was here? She would want you comfy in a nice home and doing work you lovingly provided as you did before she left us to grow and experience else where in her journey. You have a work ethic and skills that you built at such a young age, did you know your niece is also a painter? She’s very good at it, and I know where it comes from. Seeing you speak here…you are bright and capable; one thing that has not changed is your warmth, your generosity and love of life despite your loss and circumstances. I miss you and find it hard to fathom you are homeless. I love you big brother and concerned with winter coming…I wish you better and better and you are far from invisible, and yes, that is very curious!
