“I was never embarrassed like that in my whole life”

Tony on Remembrance Day

TONY
“This morning, I was never embarrassed like that in my whole life. Me and my friend went to breakfast. I told my friend that it was no problem because I could pay for it with my 15 bucks. After breakfast, I couldn’t find my 15 bucks anywhere and I looked everywhere. I followed back my whole trail back to here [Tony’s spot on Roncesvalles Ave.] but I couldn’t find it. I nearly took my clothes off looking for it [Tony smiles]. So I had to tell the owner [of the restaurant] that I would pay him later. He didn’t have a problem because he sees me nearly every day so he trusts me. Even my friend was embarrassed.”

    Hello, Tony,

    I just wanted to commend you for speaking out. I’m glad your voice is getting heard. Keep talking. We’re reading.

    And please stay warm and take care of yourself this winter!
