STOP THE DEATHS

Wednesday August 20 – 1pm
Outside the Coroner’s Office
15 Grosvenor Street
(West of Yonge, North of College)

Frank Julian, Carolyn Connolly, Dennis Bowen, Robert Maurice, Biniyam Selleshi…

In the last month, two more people in our community have died. We don’t want to have to bury another person from the neighbourhood. People are dying on the street and in shelters. People are dying in their apartments alone in the far corners of the city, with only a few dollars left a month
after their rent is paid because they were shipped out of the neighbourhood by Streets to Homes. No more people should have to die because the City has abandoned them to struggle and suffer in poverty. The City has to stop telling the public everything is okay. How can everything be okay when we have already lost four people this summer?! Why does the mayor and the City remain silent on our deaths?

We Need:

Decent Housing
Adequate Income
Food and Shelter

We must demand that the City take action to address these deaths and the daily hell and conditions people are experiencing.

Come out:

Wednesday August 20 – 1pm
Outside the Coroner’s Office
15 Grosvenor Street
(West of Yonge, North of College)
