The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty has made a short film on conditions of brutal overcrowding within Toronto’s homeless shelter system in collaboration with a few key allies. OCAP is going to show the film outside the building where Mayor John Tory lives in somewhat better circumstances.
As we move into winter, the homeless are being crammed into facilities where they face the most appalling conditions or are dumped onto the streets. The crisis is being compounded by a concerted drive by City Hall to move shelters out of the City core to make way for more upscale redevelopment.
Come out, see the film and support the fight for the right to shelter.
Note: St. George is an accessible subway station.
