Public support is pouring in after two homeless men from Saskatchewan were handed one-way bus tickets to BC.
Union Gospel Mission spokesperson Jeremy Hunka says Charles Neil-Curly and Jeremy Roy are grateful to those who have already reached out to help.
“They hear about this story and there have been offers of employment, offers of ferry transportation, offers for other things, and these guys are extremely appreciate of it.”
The pair arrived at Pacific Central Station after a 17 hour bus ride from a Saskatchewan homeless shelter yesterday.
They say they want to start new lives in BC after being denied shelter funding in their home province.
