Some people choose to live on the streets of Toronto throughout the winter.
That's right, I said they choose to live on the streets. But the choice they make is a Hobson's choice between the overcrowded, bed bug infested and dangerous conditions of the city's shelter system or the hard, cold streets.
John Clarke from the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) posted a photo on Twitter snapped by a shelter worker in February showing what he says is blood on a wall inside Seaton House.
The World Figure Skating Championships are ongoing in London, Ontario until March 17. Outside the arena, however, some in London are expressing their concerns about the impact of this event.
You may be wondering why London all of a sudden looks so "clean." You may also be wondering why "all those people" hanging out at Dundas and Richmond are no longer present. I can assure you that the rerouting of public transit to other streets is not the cause of the disappearance of many community members in the downtown core.
