Residents living near Toronto shelters are upset over city’s lack of consultation
As part of the rental agreement with the developer, these residents had to move because the buildings are being prepared for demolition.
Protests over suspected security concerns near the buildings and a nearby hotel that has also been converted into a shelter have sparked tensions in the area over the past month.
‘Basically warehouses:’ downtown Toronto shelters not supported, advocates say
Critics say there has been an increase in crime in the area, although police have not confirmed this.
In response to the complaints, the city proposed a number of new measures, including 24-hour security and mental health and addictions support.
