Reggie Walker back in Cornwall Ontario to Focus on Poverty and Plight of the Homeless – August 10, 2011

Cornwall ON – Reggie Walker visited Cornwall Ontario again to bring light to the plight of those most needy in our society; the homeless.   Reggie Walker is a character portrayed by Poverty activist Gary Samler.   Gary also ran for City Council on a poverty platform in the last municipal elections, but wasn’t elected.

For a city of nearly 50,000 people Reggie estimated that there were 150-200 homeless people which shows that while a problem like many cities experience indicates that Cornwall does a fairly good job with helping those in need.

Reggie did focus on the need for a drop in centre for the homeless and I can’t understand why the Agape Centre can’t provide that role?

Here is a link to Reggie’s first visit to Cornwall last year.

You can find Reggie and his home in a box around the Cornwall Ontario area until September.
