Isnt that the truth, and if you bother to complain they will just turn their heads. As per my own experience.
Charles who are we to talk, we are no better than the sewer rats. We can only feed on what they give us. NOTHING.
Go ask Senator Oliver folks, if he really cares about human rights? The you can ask him why he owns buildings in Saint John NB that are falling apart, and people are living in horrible conditions. Why he doesnt fix them?
I'll tell you why. Most of the people up here are on welfare or damn near close to it, and poor people don't have a voice.
I should know I emailed him about my wet, moldy apt and got no response. Yet he gets his goons to come to my apt today and tells me that they are not going to fix the problem and tells us to deal with it or move.
WTF????

meanwhile pretty senator Donald oliver is sitting on his ass collecting from the poor. From his own gov. if you think about it. I mean who else cuts those welfare checks? Who else gets our taxes?

Fredericton police are trying to figure out how a homeless man wound up trapped inside a garbage dumpster for approximately 20 hours.

Police say a neighbour was walking past the garbage bins on Smythe Street just before 8 a.m. Monday morning, when a strange moaning noise began emanating from inside one of the green bins.

Cpl. Martin Gaudet says officers who responded to the scene found a man in his late 50s pinned inside the dumpster. He says the man could have been there for as long as 20 hours, but escaped serious injury.

"I understood that he was at the [Dr. Everett Chalmers] hospital and that they were going to do a check-up and he was going to be released later this [Monday] morning. That's what we were told."

Gaudet says officers are still trying to figure out how the man ended up in the dumpster.

'If a person has to find extra pennies by living in a dumpster, then maybe it's time for our new government to investigate the amount of income assistance that's given to people.'

-Pat CarlesonFredericton Emergency Shelter director Pat Carleton says it's likely the man was "dumpster diving" – searching the bin for bottles or other items that could be sold.

Carleson says she's never heard of anyone being trapped while dumpster diving, but it does pose a hazard to the people who do it. She says the incident is a sign that more needs to be done to help the homeless.

"If a person has to find extra pennies by living in a dumpster, then maybe it's time for our new government to investigate the amount of income assistance that's given to people."

Carleson says the minimum $270 monthly income assistance should be doubled.
