Squeegee kids

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

The sum­mer of 1998 is the sea­son of squeegee kids, and City Hall is not pleased. Toronto po­lice start in­vok­ing the High­way Traf­fic Act to ticket the un­em­ployed young folk, and civil lib­er­tar­i­ans are aghast. Clever OCAP gets waivers from those tick­eted so org ac­tivists can show up on their be­half. NOW sends a re­porter un­der­cover with a squeegee and a bucket to tells read­ers what it’s like living as a cop tar­get. The stigma is so bad she can’t get served at a restau­rant.
