Roy

Roy is homeless in London, a Canadian city in southwestern Ontario, located just north of Lake Erie and the U.S. border. He says he has been on the streets for ten years now.

Roy worked for 21 years at the General Motors until the factory was closed down and the work sent overseas.

When we first started to talk, I noticed we were standing in front of a no trespassing sign. Roy went on to explain the music being pumped outside is to keep homeless people from standing around on the corner.
