Letter: Is this living?

Editor,

The fentanyl crisis is only a way we can stop the suffering. Is this living? If Trudeau gave one care about people he might donate or give grants to each province to help the homeless in Canada. He’s bringing foreign citizens into Canada instead of helping the ones that are already here. When the foreign citizens get down on their luck, how many will be homeless?

I’m willing to donate my time to run the extreme weather shelter from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. so us homeless don’t have to suffer 12 hours every day. I know I’m getting sick of suffering 12 hours every day. If things don’t change, I’m almost at the end of my rope! Is this living?

People have asked me why do they take drugs? I’ve walked the walk. Try being homeless. Is this not extreme weather? This is my third year suffering during the winter and I suffer from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. Is this living? I can see why we take our lives. There is nothing in the future so you keep suffering. Trudeau gives millions to foreign countries. Maybe he needs glasses, he should look in his own backyard. Walk through Canada and see his Canadian citizens starving and suffering from freezing to death. When I awake I have to look at, oh boy, another 12 hours of suffering from freezing, going hungry.

The last mayor was invited to hang around with me for one week. He did not reply. So I invite this one to do the same.
