wow, so touchy seeing that there were a lot of kindhearted people who offer helps and supports for homeless people in the Ottawa area..those less fortunate people in Ottawa are very lucky because they live in the place where many people are very kind to them,, though they are homeless but they are fortunate of having a neighbors who have arms wide open and willing to extend help.
