A moment of silence for homeless man killed by police

L’Itinéraire, the Montreal magazine written by homeless people, celebrated its twentieth anniversary Tuesday.

To commemorate, they invited Montreal public figures to sell the magazine in the metro for an hour.

There was a moment of silence, during the event, for the homeless man who was shot and killed by Montreal police Monday.

Mayor Denis Coderre said he was sad about the death but wouldn't comment on it while it was under investigation.

He says better services for the homeless are included in this year's budget, which will begin with a survey to understand the services needed.

“You don’t address the same thing with the women issue, with the men issue, with the Inuit issue, you need to have that kind of sensitivity where you are understanding that every case is unique.”
