There is a saying that will never die. “Give a fish every day to someone and he will come to depend on it. Show someone how to fish and he will catch his own fish.”
Yes, the genuine homeless in Vernon deserve to be helped. But how do you deal with the non-genuine, the short of change for a cup of coffee guy or a well rehearsed, therefore well presented story from this kind of person in dire need?
Vernon is a nice place to live but this constant situation annoys. Hopefully, the city will address the problem sooner than later.
