As homeless encampments were being dismantled near Hope Mission in Edmonton Thursday, Raymond Yellowbird said he is not quite sure where he will go. Every time this happens, he said he loses a lot of his possessions, including clothes and his tent.
“There’s a lot of harsh environment. You also worry about safety.”
But Yellowbird is adamant that he does not want to go to a shelter.
He said he doesn’t like them and now also has additional concerns amid a Shigella outbreak.
“I am pretty sure the government could see a different side of this world if they came out onto these streets,” Yellowbird said.
