“I think it still comes as a shock and a surprise to people in our community, Port Colborne and Wainfleet, that there is actually homelessness here,” Port Cares executive director Christine Clark Lafluer said. “We may not see it day-to-day on the streets, it may not be as visible as larger centres like Toronto, but, it is here.”
