Ottawa has the best beggars on the planet.

"Hey Buddy, can you spare a dollar?"

If you refuse, you hear: "Ok, then. Have a nice day!" And, they meant it.

You'd buy a guy like that a sandwich. The Canadian Air Force major with our party assured us they are most certainly panhandling for drinking money or drugs. Their social services are pretty good.

You'd see the same beggars at the same places every day. Polite beggars who have assigned stations.

Well, if you're going to beg, I bet it works better to be nice.
