Meet The Streets | Chapter 1 | Bernie, Jessica, Aaron & Stéphane
Introducing our interview series "Meet The Streets", as we hand out winter survival wear on the streets of Ottawa, we learn the stories of those we help. Here's our first look into life on the streets of Canada.
"I entered the Paralympics in 1983 - I broke the world record for weightlifting then I was asked to go to provincials where I won 4 gold 1 silver in arm wrestling, weightlifting, shot put, discus, and javelin."
"I'm next in line for the food bank, my boyfriend and I are taking turns looking after Oreo here"
"This is perfect, I just lost my whole wardrobe. I was in there trying to get a clothing voucher and they wouldn't give me one."
"I no longer have keys to my own house, I'm alone out here"
