On a typical weekday afternoon in Calgary, a group of four friends and I walk to the corner of Queen and King streets and sit down to a meal of fried chicken, pasta and chicken broth.
We order a salad, a burger and a milkshake.
The meal is shared on our iPhones, where we can see how the food is being prepared.
It is our way of saying thank you to the city and our neighbours.
As we eat, we see that many of the neighbours, in fact, live across the street from us, across the Calgary River, just to the south of us.
We have a chance to look at what our neighbours are doing in our community and in their neighbourhood, to learn about how the city, the province and the country are responding to the refugee crisis and what the future holds for them.
We see that most of the residents in the neighbourhood have no landline.
They have little or no internet and no cellphone.
In some cases, they don’t even have an internet connection.
In the summer, the winter and in the year ahead, there will be no internet.
We also see that in some cases they don�t have much money to live on.
They live off of donations and they don���t have a job. They don�T have electricity and they have no running water.
Many of them don�ts even have a home.
Many people have nothing.
Many are in need.
We are part of a generation of Canadians that is struggling to survive.
The world is watching.
The United Nations estimates that more than 1.1 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty.
Most of those are in the developing world.
Canada is one of only a few countries in the developed world that don� t have a universal basic income, or UBI.
The UBI, which is designed to pay everyone a certain amount for a set period of time, is a universal payment system that is already in place in many developed countries and is used by many countries across the world.
This universal basic payment has become a rallying point for many refugees and immigrants in Canada, who have been frustrated with the lack of resources and support from the federal government.
But many of them also see it as a way of rebuilding the relationship between the federal and provincial governments.
The fact that we are living in a time where we have been fighting so hard for the refugees, for the asylum seekers, for those who are refugees, and for those with nowhere else to go, is not something that is easy to understand or relate to.
We all have a stake in what happens in our communities.
And that is why we are here.
For me, that is how it has always been.
I was born and raised in a refugee camp in Thailand and I came to Canada as a child.
It was a place where I felt like I had a place.
I felt safe.
It felt like a safe and welcoming community.
But as I have seen the effects of war, persecution, poverty, economic deprivation and racism, I know it cannot be a home for everyone.
I know there are people who have no hope.
I understand that.
But I also know that we have a lot of work to do.
We need to make sure that our government and our communities can support refugees and asylum seekers.
I have been fortunate to be part of an incredibly strong and compassionate group of Canadians.
This is an amazing place.
We welcome you to visit us.
