When I started out walking today in the Vancouver rain, I didn’t think I would run into anyone sleeping rough. Normally people experiencing homelessness get out from the wet and stay inside at mall locations or fast food restaurant.

Tony grew up far north of Vancouver and says this weather is not that bad here. To me, homelessness is horrible no matter the climate, yet I can’t fathom surviving out in this cold.

Tony was inside a building complex that didn’t have electricity or water. The place was what Tony and another man told me worse than homelessness.

Tony’s three wishes: good music all of the time, happiness and laughter.
