This has been making the rounds on the internet, with many calling this man a Canadian hero!
Collin Kennedy is a Winnipeg man that has been battling Leukemia since 1999, and has been treated over at CancerCare Manitoba.
He’s a single father on social assistance who is primarily bed bound..
And he says the increased parking rates around the hospital where he gets his treatment have become unaffordable. He estimates he has spent over $600 on parking fees since last year… And wants to change that.
On Monday, Kennedy used spray foam to fill a city-operated parking meter near the clinic, something he said he plans to do until changes are made.
“People who come for treatment or to get their medications to live, to survive, should not have that barrier put between them and that treatment,” he said. “It’s a financial drain on the people who need the money most.”
