Emergency Action Tuesday: Homeless Man found frozen to death

Emergency Action Tuesday – Toronto – Homeless Man Frozen to Death
Tuesday, March 4, 2008
11am
Toronto City Hall

100 Queen St West (Queen and Bay)

Wednesday night (February 27th 2008) an Aboriginal man who was homeless was found frozen to death in a stairwell around Yonge and Charles St.

Another man was found in Chinatown with serious injury from exposure. Just six days ago the City heard 12 deputations from agencies and community members about the current crisis. After the loss of over 300 shelter spaces and basic needs such as food, we have been left in a dangerous situation.

Demands were made for only the most basic need – shelter.

The City’s response was to leave people in danger and to risk injury and death. The death of this man and the injury and suffering of other homeless people is on the hands of the City.

On Tuesday will be going to City Hall to face Miller and demand an immediate response to this crisis.

This is a serious situation and we ask that you make all efforts to join us.
