IMPACT OF HOMELESS SHELTERS ON CITY NEIGHBOURHOODS AMID PANDEMIC-AUGUST 12 2020

Libby Znaimer is joined by Rachel Chernos-Lin, TDSB Trustee for Ward 11, Don Valley West.

Toronto has been seeing the establishment of homeless shelters across the city as part of the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, this has left many business owners and residents concerned for the safety of their communities. Rachel talks about a letter that she sent, alongside TDSB Trustee Shelley Laskin, to the city’s general manager of shelter, support and housing administration echoing concerns of building shelters near schools.
