This my experience of helping the homeless and why our population needs to find a way to end homelessness. During the winter, I had noticed an increasing percentage of homeless people sleeping in relatively public spaces to stay warm. I once even noticed 15 people sleeping on the stairs of the Bonaventure metro station due to the weather outside being so cold. When I looked at those people I was stunned. These people slept in such a way that they looked dead. The people who were sleeping on the floor were young and did not deserve to be living in such horrible conditions.
