We Are Not Faceless: October 21, 2017

Pierre. Saturday, October 21, 2017. Sitting on a styrofoam block on the front steps of a store, on the corner of Sherbrooke and Drummond.

“I came from Terrebonne to downtown Montreal for work. I found a room to rent and that’s when I noticed that the room was infested with bugs. When I spoke to the man who rented the room out to me, to ask for my money back, he did not want to. He took all my money. I had nothing and that is how I ended up on the street. I lost all of my papers and I have no permanent address in order to get new papers. I cannot get any social benefits, I have no papers. I’m forever stuck on the streets.”

Pierre did not want his picture to be taken.
