Here’s a way one city is addressing the homeless problem: Orlando bans charitable groups from the feeding homeless people in parks.
I did a bit of checking and discovered that Las Vegas passed the same ordinance one week before Orlando. It’s all in the name of safety and aesthetics of course. It will be interesting to see how far the anti-charity spreads among city councils…and if Canadian cities import the "solution".
It will also be interesting to see what charitable groups do about it. Yesterday, the organization Food not Bombs successfully managed to comply with the restrictive ordinance while still feeding the homeless. A resourceful bunch. Non-aggressive resistance is still alive. Huge kudos to "Food not Bombs".
