“It really was just I took the dog for a walk and I had recently just lost 4 grandparents in 18 months so I was kind of thinking of death but not in a negative way they all lived great lives; and I was just walking thinking I want to leave more of a foot print and that’s really how it started and then I thought back to always wanting to work with under privileged at risk youth and by the end of the walk the foundation of what is Now4Youth was basically formed. Another two months cause the only way I can think of raising funds was to do a yogathon which again had already been done and you don’t get as much return as what I wanted. I wanted to make a pretty big impact and then I thought of the coffee table book and I thought of the poses are gorgeous and they have never really lived up to their full potential I don’t think as far as visually and got that part of the idea and just ran with it. All I want from it is for every person who gets trained in the program it’s such a ripple effect of the positive that they will send out and especially because they have to volunteer back into the program they came from they now have the ability to have a positive impact on all those kids now that are going through it.”

“Childhood wasn’t very easy for me it was quite challenging in many ways at school as well as at home. It got to the point that anywhere was better then where I was so I left home when I was about 14 years old. I had maybe $50 in my bank account and I took it with a nap sack with 3 pairs of shorts because it was summer, incredibly naïve and I hitch hiked to Toronto and then I was paranoid my parents were going to find me so I hitch hiked to Vancouver and I stayed in Vancouver for maybe two weeks and I liked Toronto better so I wanted to come back so when I came back to Toronto from Vancouver the summer was kind of a write off in terms of what I could do because it was summer, I could sleep anywhere I could sleep on the streets I could sleep in alleyways parks that kind of stuff it wasn’t hard to survive that way. Although one significant difference between living on the streets now compared to the early 80s you never asked for spare change on the streets back then it was just not something that happened. The other way that I survived by eating was eating out of McDonalds dumpsters they were incredible with throwing good healthy stuff away, healthy stuff I guess is left to your opinion but it was food and it was sustiness. It was more regular for me to eat out of McDonalds dumpster then it was to go in and steal food or something like that from a grocery store.”

“This is one of the places, Yong Street and just basically just north of College. This is one of the places that I actually got to eat the most when I was living on the streets. It was easy because it was convenient. It was a lot seedier looking back then, there’s a brand new building up here right now. The garbage’s have changed, they’ve actually upgraded to recycling which is pretty cool. The garbage bins have changed as well. The old ones used to be angled like this and you would have to lift up so to speak and everything was tossed in there together, and now its all nice packaged garbage in nice plastic bags. It was never like that, I used to hang in and grab whatever I could get, and it’s pretty updated which is pretty cool. Its kind of weird being back here, I mean the road is the same way you know with all the crevasses and stuff nothings changed that way. So everything this side of the alley way is there. But it was a lot darker; there was something else on this other side, not this building. So it was easy to hide which what was really nice. Cus living on the streets even though like I said earlier back in those days you didn’t pan handle like we have street kids asking for money and stuff like that these days. Never ever did you ask for things like that? So you didn’t want to get caught necessarily, you kind of knew it was socially incorrect. “

“I don’t know if your familiar with Evergreen on Yong Street it’s a street hostel place where street kids go and hang out to get support to get a warm meal and stuff. And it was around when I was around on the streets but I never went there because I had one friend who I thought we were going to be best friends forever, and he got involved in drugs. And one day he was there at Evergreen and the next day he was gone. And the talk and the gossip among the kids was that he was kidnapped away for child prostitution and pornography. “

Covenant house at the time was a house, that was at the corner of Church and Gerard,
Broll Tape 3: 00:06: 21-00:06: 28
“So they were not the big building or corporation that they are now, back then they were much smaller. Because now they take up a whole city block at Yong and Gerrard right? It’s a street hostile where kids go to get shelter to have a place to stay, to get it together. And back then you would sleep in the living room and it was divided, the guys would sleep in one house and the girls would sleep in another house all together somewhere separate. You know the gym mats you use in school? For gymnastics and stuff like that? The blue ones. You would get one of those each night they would move the furniture around and we would all sleep in the living room together. There was security for safety but um it wasn’t uncommon that there would be someone around who had a knife and they would take whatever jewelry r watches that you had while you were sleeping and hold you at knife point. I’ve had that experience. The protocol was that you would stay there you would sleep. You had two weeks to find employment. And they gave you forms to fill out as you were going out to find employment. So already the process is there to not help you survive. Because they’re trying to monitor what your doing. But who’s going to hire you? Like what person is going to say you’re a street kid I’m going to let you in? When you get a job and you get a steady paycheck, you have to give that paycheck to the people of covenant house. The idea is you have a paycheck to cover fist and last months rent. Then you can get your own apartment then you can move out and you’re on your own. So as that’s happening my friend was saying that he would like to get an apartment together to save the rent. “We’ll get a bachelor it wont be so expensive, it all sounded really cool.
Broll Tape 3: 00:08: 13-00:08: 16
“So the time came when we were looking for an apartment. We saw an apartment but we didn’t want to take the one we were looking at cus it was like rat infested. I mean you kind of get what you can get but we thought we moved a little but up from the streets, lets keep the momentum up. The other aspect was I was trying to get back into high school to finish my high school education. But I had no residence so I couldn’t go back to school like I had no address. It’s the same thing with welfare you have to have an address for you to get welfare. So it was all a whole challenge you have to have somewhere to live before you get the help. So it wasn’t help you know what I mean? So once I had the job and could pay for rent she let me use her address and I started getting welfare then I got myself back to school and I finished my high school education. I started working in restaurants here and there to pay for rent and live my life. I never really got involved in drugs; I never got involved in drugs. Alcohol was fun for escapism. But drugs I knew not to get involved with. I knew it was the beginning of the end if I got involved in that. After I finished high school and started working, I spent about eight or seven years working and it wasn’t enough and I wanted more out of my life. “

“You Know I did its interesting cause and I have heard that expression before and I know the expression quite well sort a like rebellious. I don’t really know if I rebelled or if I just you know depending on where you lived, depends on the friends you make and all that sort a stuff, you know your peers, not pressure I was never really pressure in my life. There was never anybody telling me do this or do that or um I just through words and my own experience and my own needs I think for my own development I just went on what a lot of people would not consider not a good path, you know and my parents yeah I am sure in there eyes there was a rebellion because it was a extremely painful youth that I had and it was a painful experience for them to go through as well.”

“At first I started with tennis like that whole world kind of protected me and buffered me because I was quite popular in the tennis world because of how good I was and then I really got in a bad car accident when I was 16 and that sort of cracked my whole bubble. It turned my skin out basically. It was a world without any protection and that’s how I started to get into drugs.”

Clip 6 Orlando Baptiste
11:35- 12: 18
“And you are s f* out of control and you ask what I was chasing, what was I doing. When I stared to smoke crack like 5:00 in the afternoon and it is 4:00 in the morning and I ma by my self and I am on the floor looking for anything that might have dropped and you are looking through the window and on people wondering if anyone is coming and then 4:00 in the morning you run out of stuff and your brain tells you call the dealer and get some more.”

Clip 7 Orlando Baptiste :12:16- 12 49

“I basically got sober and I got sober through treatment centers and all that stuff. I sort of start there and come backwards a little bit and um you you learn a lot in programs like Alcoholist. You learn all sort of stuff like you know you are an alcoholic for the rest of your life, it’s a disease, blah blah..
There’s all kind of stuff you learn in this sort of 3D world about dysfunction blah blah blah just all that stuff.”

“I could not be the guy today that’s going to sit down with my kids unless I went through that stuff .In some way, It’s the only way I could have broken that cultural gap in order to get to a place I needed to be a father that’s going to listen to my children when they are sad or when they are afraid or that kind of stuff. The story is not over its not complete of Orlando’s life.”
