Canada Solves San Francisco's Homeless Crisis=20

Oh, Canada. (Note the conspicuous lack of an exclamation point there.) =
Wanting an "outsider's opinion" on the topic of homelessness in San =
Francisco, the Chron's C.W. Nevius appealed to Ontario resident and =
"appalled" tourist Christine Oaster: "It's stunning to me," she said. =
"I'm a well-traveled girl. I've been to Europe, the Mediterranean and =
New York. How can San Francisco, that claims to be this tourist mecca, =
let this happen?" According to Nevius, the problem lies in part with a =
"disconnect over what's happening on the street and the perception." =
Oaster clarifies: "I'm from Canada," she said. "I accept the snow. I =
think it is like San Francisco accepts the homeless." Disconnect: =
achieved. [SF Gate]
