Winnipeg Sun promotes dehumanizing perceptions

Mark Horvath, the homeless awareness activist travelling the continent (and currently Canada) has just been bitchslapped by the Winnipeg Sun for all his hard, humanitarian work.

The Winnipeg Sun is running two stories on "bums" and "aggressive panhandlers" with the front-page headline "BUM RUSH." Which is exactly the kind of bullshit that Mark is fighting to change. Perception of homeless people.

Everything the Winnipeg Sun published today is put to shame by this video, shot not ten minutes before my first meeting with Mark, in Winnipeg.



Yeah. This guy is a fuckin' menace to society.

Enforce them bylaws. Tom Brodbeck is scared.
