Gypsy Panhandlers calling themselves “refugees” appear on GTA streets

…One day of searching. Five women, all with similar stories. Three claiming they were Bosnian, two from Romania.

The next day, we revisited the first woman we spoke to outside of the Gardens. This time, when I asked where she was from, she admitted she was from Romania. I asked if she was Roma, she nodded her head and said, “Yes. Roma, Gypsy.”

A few minutes later we discovered yet another woman at the intersection of Yonge and Dundas. Her English, like everyone we spoke with, was broken, but she too confirmed she was from Romania and that she was Roma.

You can thank PM Asshat for this.
