NO MORE HOMELESS DEATHS: Take action to set-up emergency shelter space

Meal and Planning Meeting
Friday, February 15th
11am
Church of the Holy Trinity
10 Trinity Sq (near Queen/Bay)

There have been 2 homeless deaths in the past few weeks in Toronto making
36 deaths in one year alone. The city and the Province have cut funding to
shelters, housing and homeless prevention services even though the reality
is that shelters are full and cuts are costing lives.

We have taken this issue again and again to the City of Toronto’s Shelter
Support and Housing Administration including demands signed by over 1000
people – and yet they refuse to take action. We can not sit by while more
people die. Let’s talk about taking and setting up an emergency shelter.
If they won’t open shelter beds – we will. Direct action is required.
Please come out on Friday, February 15th to talk together about how we can
do this.
