By Abnor. I was talking to some of the folks down at the TeePee and they say they’re still waiting for Bruce Banman to drop by for a drag on the peace pipe.
A few Abbotsford councillors have bothered to get involved in the Abbotsford Homelessness Crisis. Patrica Ross, no matter what people say about her, actually wants to meet a homeless person. “I’ll go stay at her house any day,” was what one TeePee resident told me when I told everyone she really wants to help.
But seriously, I know my editor loves making fun of Patty, but I think she really wants to accomplish something for the homeless.
I know Dave Loewen gives a damn. My editor makes fun of Dave a lot to but, when it comes to the people at the bottom … I think Dave gives a shit.Henry Braun is the only one who ever came to down to visit us in Jubilee Park. It kinda felt like Jesus visiting the lepers. He wasn’t afraid. He wasn’t phony. He was just a guy who wanted to know what the fuck our lives were like.
I heard he said that, if he had gone through some of the shit we’ve been through, he’d be a doper just like us.
I wish we could vote. Those three people would get my vote.
We’re all still waiting for Mayor Banman to visit but hey … the last time he was down in this part of town there was chicken shit everywhere.
I don’t know if … do you think maybe … he’s not coming?
It’s probably better that way :'(

Editor’s Note:Abnor joins us from time to time with a question or two about what he sees around him. He has plenty of time on his hands and he spends a great deal of his time wandering the streets of Abbotsford wondering about what he sees and hears. He’s a modern day hobo with a Blackberry.
