Jonah Gibson-Eagles isn’t looking forward to pitching a tent and sleeping outside tonight, but that is likely what he will end up doing.
He is one of about 100 people in Moncton who slept in the emergency out-of-the-cold shelters over the winter. Both of those shelters closed on Monday morning.
“It was definitely a damp mood,” Gibson-Eagles said of his last night in the shelter at the Humanity Project on St. George Street.
He left with a tent under one arm, and a sleeping bag under the other.
