Clean Sweep?

Ah, it’s that time of the year again, the crazy, hazy, lazy days of early summer where the streets are clean and the bums are… hey where are the bums anyway???

If you live or work downtown, you know that in the last few years Calgary has been the summer holiday destination for bums from all over the country. They love it here, the warm weather, the clear blue sky, all the change they can steal from working people, but where are they right now??

Yes, that’s right! It’s time for the annual Pre-Stampede Bum Clear-out! It’s that happy time of year when the cops, or the city in some other unknown and perhaps insidious fashion, gathers up the majority of the vagrants, pan-handlers, and bums and effectively hides them away somewhere until after Stampede

Where do they go? Nobody knows.

All I know for sure is they are not in the inner city anymore.

So I give you that to chew on, and bid you good day, and Happy Stampede!





Yee-Haw.

Methinks it's a bit less sinister. . .I recall seeing a number of raggedy-looking characters in very new-looking shirts over the course of the Stampede's insanity.

Thankfully it's over now, at least until next year.
