Youth homelessness advocate pushes shopping cart across Canada

By Makala Chapman [1] and Tara Henley [2]

BELLEVILLE – A former homeless man is making a stop at Loyalist College [3] on Monday to talk about youth poverty and awareness.

Joe Roberts, a Loyalist graduate, is taking part in a 9,000 km awareness marathon called P [4]ush for Change [4]. He is pushing a shopping cart, a symbol of homelessness, across the country to raise funds and bring attention to the 35,000 youth living on the street in Canada.

More to come.
