Name? , Saturday, October 21st, 2017. Name has been on the street for some time now in front of the Pharmaprix across from Concordia Universities. “I used to be a highly experienced florist, but over time my hours kept getting cut more and more until I eventually just quit because I wasn’t making enough money. Unfortunately, no one was hiring someone with my high level of experience and pay me for what I’m worth, so that is how I ended up here. Concordia students have been generous and helped me out a lot when they are passing by to and from class.”
