Life made harder for homeless people

John Bonnar
In London, "anti-homeless" spikes were found on Monday outside the front door of a luxury apartment building, presumably to deter them from sleeping on the street.

anti-itinerant "spikes" in London ... and Montréal

I'm sure some of you have seen the so-called "spikes" popping up in London to prevent homeless people from sleeping rough outside the posh properties in that city, infested with billionaires. There is something similar here in Mtl. outside Archambault, a historic music store in the Latin Quarter, now selling books and other "stuff" as the market dictates.

Even if you don't read French, look at the photo. Other than the fact that they treat human itinerants like pigeons, they strike me as dangerous to anyone walking by who is a bit clumsy, not to mention people with low vision.
