The constitutional soundness of Ontario's Safe Streets Act, which prohibits begging and other activities that more severely criminalize the homeless, is critiqued in these essays. The exclusion and punishment of the population termed "disorderly people" is discussed, with attention to how this law encourages a constriction of the public and private rights of the poor.
