Ken has lived in Vancouver for about 5 years, on and off the street.
He worked for about 5 years, and then he lost his apartment. He sleeps in parkades.
Money is harder to get in the winter but sometimes he gets work in construction in the summer months.
He has 2 dogs, a pit-bull named Gage and a Dalmatian crossed with a boxer, named Jersey Cow. When he does get some money he will get an apartment and let the dogs stay in during the day.
Advice to young people thinking of a life on the street:
“Go to school get a good education and stick to it. Stay off drugs.”
