I was absolutely disgusted to read the bitch bemoaning panhandlers on Spring Garden Road last week. If you're more uncomfortable by people standing/sitting in one place with a Tim Horton's cup asking you for change than people living in your city falling into such extreme impoverishment, you really need some serious reorganizing of your values. I have lived here for 20-plus years I have never once been chased down, screamed at, or verbally abused by a Spring Garden Road panhandler when I couldn't fulfill a request for change. Instead, I was often met with a 'have a nice day', 'that's okay', or even the occasional 'god bless'. I say this as somebody who would very frequently walk up and down that street to go to class or work for more than a decade. I really hope you never find yourself in circumstances where you have to choose between panhandling and going hungry.—Maybe re-evaluate what actual 'harassment' is
