|Stop asking for change. Get a Job!|
|In any other city this would be a cruel statement. But in Halifax Tim Hortons needs so many people there can't be such a thing as 'homeless.' Here are some suggestions to get rid of this problem:|
1. Sue the street people for Harrassment (exception: If they are playing an instrument or doing something constructive it's all good)
2. Force them to work a regular work-week.
I've seen the same people every day for over ten years now. They have new shoes, smoking cigarettes and drinking their daily coffee from Tim's. Guess what. A coffee a day equals around $40 a month. Multiply that by A year and you've got $480. So don't buy that money. Save up and get a real damn job. Because you're ticking us all off. And it won't get better for you. I've been around the world. You don't know real homeless until you're in a ghetto in Mexico City. Get some ambition. Or get out of our beautiful town.
