I think the guy is called Ricky. He hangs out on Commercial drive too. I think he runs some kind of underground electronic music rave thing on the side.

The tall skinny guy? I saw him in mcdoughs scamming a refill once too. Whenever I pass him he gives me the peace sign and a nod, he said he used to own a KTM 125 or something.

They are all skinny

Dyed blond.. you see him sometimes on Commercial drive.

I don't think typical beggars think in terms of daily income. Quite a few have some mental difficencies, pretty sure they don't want to be beggars if they can.. They are human beings too. Talk to them once a while. If you are a hipster go to Save on meat and buy a token.

Our gov is not equipped now to treat them.. that was what Riverview etc were for. However I think the provincial gov knows if they reopen Riverview and clean up DTES, it will be a huge real estate boon for the government.

No more like whether you row down your window or not (or have your top down).

Also places like Boundary and #1 etc their residences are just around the corner at the motel place.

So many beggars are full of shit. I never give them money. Not even if they have a dog.

If you do feel the need to give, give food. A real homeless person will take it. The ones that are full of shit or need it for drugs will demand money.

Also, real homeless people probably won't talk to you. The ones with stories are most likely lying to you. I flat out ignore anyone that approaches me.

5+ years ago, I used to love seeing Jerry there. He never asked for money and always had something witty or nice to say. RIP

I have a keen eye and feel bad for the suckers who actually think these homeless people are in trouble.

Beggars at main intersection works in shifts like a company.
Watch out cause their very territorial...you'll get shopping cart to death by them and their crew if you try working their corner.

They make quite a bit and even have cell phones so they can pick up their crack every couple hours. Nothing goes to food...cause theres a daily location for that
Everything goes to supporting their drug addiction.

If you ever do feel the need to help, give your money to an organization like Union Gospel Mission or any of the others helping the less fortunate. They'll do way more good with your money than a random crack head. Not only will they utilize your donation better but it will be worth more since I'm sure they get breaks from the government.

Then those of you that feel guilt or whatever won't anymore...and you won't binge give money to scammers. Like not going to the grocery store hungry.

Make decisions logically, not emotionally.

i live in china now & i see a shit load of scams/beggers

rumor has it that some ppl drive S-class mercs at night going to KTV & clubs, while begging in day time in china

not gonna lie, i been scammed by this before here in china & i dont really mind giving a bit my spare change

ppl have told me that u shouldnt give them food, as if anything happens they can sue u back if they get sick or what not over here (yes if happens)

i remember back in canada i use to know a homeless guy that just liked being homeless, he love being carefree in the world & thats just the way he is walking around begging for change/food

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~
