Give money to a panhandler, get fined?

Posted By on Mon, Jun 3, 2019 at 1:13 PM

Yeah, I know there's a recent Bitch about panhandlers, but it's such a major issue that continues to worsen I think it's warranted.

Giving panhandlers money just encourages the practice further, which leads to the continued harassment of pedestrians, motorists, and businesses. Clearly trying to penalize these people has had no impact, so why not start handing out fines to people who give panhandlers money?

Make it a bylaw with something like a $50 fine. As the odd person is fined in this way, word of mouth will spread and (hopefully) less people will continue to fund this shit. Honestly, just do SOMETHING. It's unreal how much worse it is here than every other major Canadian city I've visited.

Advice for our councellors

Posted By on Mon, May 27, 2019 at 2:24 PM

Today on the way to work there were three bus shelters in a row with the glass broken. As a tax payer in this city, I am tired of paying for this shit over and over. I'm sure the tempered glass that size is at least $2K per pane installed and cleaned up. My advice is for the city council to remove all the shelters as they get broken. Most bus stops don't have them. If it's raining bring a fucking umbrella. If it's cold, dress for the fucking weather. It is obvious that people in this city can't teach their fucking kids to respect property. Spend the money on useful things like maybe another brand new bus or metal benches at every bus stop.
