Shanty Town

April 12, 2009

This week I want to thank the four Calgary University students who built cardboard shanties and spent a few days camping out to raise money, and awareness of homelessness in our community. But just to clarify...there are no shanties in Calgary. If a homeless person attempted to set up camp pretty much anywhere in the city (including on the U of C campus) they would be ticketed and harassed until they moved or were thrown in remand. But good hearted people like this should be commended for their efforts. We thank you for caring. To quote and old toast, "May your good deeds multiply and spread; like butter on hot ginger bread."
