Tuesday, February 1: 12 noon All Saints Church (corner Dundas/Sherbourne)
MEAL, then, on to City Hall! co-sponsored by the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee (TDRC)
On February 1, Toronto City Council will vote on a proposal to ban
homeless people from sleeping in Nathan Phillips Square. People sleep at
City Hall because the shelters are full and conditions in many of them are
dreadful. People are forced to sleep ontside because there's not enough
truly affordable housing. By removing the homeless from the Square, the
politicians hope to remove a major political embarrassment from under their
noses. They will also send a message to every cop, City official, and
narrow-minded vigilante in Toronto that it is open season on the homeless.

Council talks about wanting to find 'solutions' to the housing crisis.
The City owns a beautiful, six-storey building at 590 jarvis that could be
social housing. Instead, they are selling it to a condo developer. We
are organizing a community tour of the property to show the whole City
what a precious resource is being squandered. On February 1, we will be
asking for the key so that 590 Jarvis can be inspected by community
representatives and to confront and defeat the bylaw against sleeping in
Nathan Phillips Square.

Come out on February 1st to demand housing for all -- not crackdowns on
the homeless.
