I volunteer for a Christian ministry to homeless and street engaged people.   One of the people I’ve met told me a story yesterday.  Seems someone was threatening him with a weapon.  He complained to a police officer – know what he was told?  “What you are doing [panhandling] is illegal.  This is just the same as if a prostitute complained to me about being threatened”.  That, I believe, was the end of that.  I think some of the constables who patrol downtown need a refresher course on the Charter.
