Less is 50 years old. He came to Regina from Ontario, to be with his partner and their three children. Since that time, his partner has passed away and their children were placed in care, later being adopted out. Two current challenges involve protecting himself while living in North Central, and battling against his addictions. Les would like to stay out of jail, and knows that fighting and using substances in public can land him back there. Past trauma and abuse have made it difficult for Les to choose better paths. Despite these struggles, Les is extremely loyal to his friends, loves the ladies (in his words), and enjoys working on Aboriginal artwork.
