Video of man dumping water on unhoused person in Montreal stirs up anger, debate


In a video circulating on social media, a woman can be seen handing over a metal container of water to a man who then dumps it on a sleeping and seemingly unhoused man.

It happened in broad daylight at a storefront on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, outside a restaurant and a gaming centre in Montreal’s Chinatown.

One of the businesses, La Toxica Montreal, posted an apology on Instagram on Monday, saying shopkeepers tried to wake up the man several times without success, and they say that’s when the owner of MTL Gaming Centre resorted to a more abrupt act.
