"Sometimes, life on the streets can complicate things when it comes to morality and decision making. For many street people survival and doing the right thing are often in conflict. Once, JJ found a wallet with 0 cash inside. The owner’s identification was still inside. JJ acted in good faith with the hopes that he might get a small reward when he returned the wallet. The owner of the wallet did not offer him anything and JJ was upset by this because he could have easily taken the money and would not have considered it stealing but rather survival. I found it interesting that many of the people on the street might not want to steal or otherwise break the law, but when it comes to surviving they will do what they feel they need to." – Yellowknife Street Stories
