In this incredible session, we had the privilege of hosting Joe Roberts, famously known as The Skidrow CEO, along with Retired OPP Constable Scott MacLeod. Their paths crossed in a moment of crisis back in 1991 when Scott responded to Joe's distress call, initially perceiving him as "just another addict going to jail." Little did he know that this encounter would spark a life-changing journey for Joe, propelling him from the streets of Vancouver as a homeless skid row addict to becoming an esteemed business and community leader. 
During the session, we delved into this extraordinary story, exploring it from both perspectives. We sought to understand what made this interaction so unique and ultimately led to such a positive transformation.
