Oakvillian

I see an article in the paper, about a man who has been living in a homemade, squatted house, and who was recently evicted. This was not too far from the area I was at near the QEW and Trafalgar, They found him when the fire department saw an extension cord running from the shop and the house. It took some time to determine who owned the land; apparently it's the Ministry of Transportation.

He's been living here for 7 years, and has been working at the same job for 15 years (at a nearby auto body shop) at $40 000 a year. But because he's been making child support payments to children from other marriages, he can't afford a place to live.

Apparently he was born and raised in Oakville, and most of his family lives here. For all intents and purposes, an ‘Oakvillian'.
