Petition update

Toronto needs to find apartment or hotel spaces for homeless people.

Shelter and Housing Justice Network

Apr 4, 2020 — 

This is what Toronto has done to date:

"Overflow shelters are not comfortable. Most of these environments have cots, which are typically used in emergency mass sheltering. These consist of fabric slung over a foldable wire frame. For bedding, the usual combination is a thin fleece blanket and a pillow. When a community needs to flee a fire or flood, these cots are a good way to make do for a few days. But they are cold, as the fabric does not retain heat, and no one would want to use them for more than a few days."
