How the Ontario Government causes homelessness

Homelessness is created by the Ontario Government and it is about rent

We need to be very clear about why homelessness is rising in Ontario. The numbers of people without housing and sleeping in shelters. It is not the result of a lack of apartments.People end up homeless because they are poor. Most receive either OW or ODSP. The increase in homelessness is the direct result of a lack of rent money; specifically the fact that neither ODSP and OW provide enough rent money to rent anything anywhere in Toronto.

Stouffville mayor has yet to apologize for CSI-style wall

Quote:
Justin Altmann has until Dec. 22 to make a public apology for the unusual photo mural he put up of staff, councillors and citizens in his office washroom earlier this year.

But his apology must be made during a council meeting and Tuesday’s session is the last one scheduled for the year.

High rents lead to increased detention on hospitals and jails.

We all know that rents in Toronto have soared.The average rent for a one bedroom apartment is $2,000. This is hard for middle class employed people. However for very poor people, particularly people with disabilities who cannot work, the situation is misery and despair.

Kathleen "I don't recall" Wynne at Trial

Wynne gave the standard lawyerly answer meant to avoid the possibility of perjury charges in the future whenever anything that could be dangerous came up in her testimony: "I don't recall".

A little nervous at the beginning, Wynne was clearly well-rehearsed: memory loss on any details that could land her in trouble — “I don’t recall the specifics of the conversation” being a common refrain — and then forthright when in less dangerous territory.

2018 Ontario NDP Candidates

Any word on nominations being held for NDP candidates in 2018? I know the PCs have started holding nominations. 

Who are some high profile names that you think should run? Will Toronto MPPs who lost in 2014 - Jonah Schein, Rosario Marchese or Michael Prue - run again? How about NDP MPs who lost in 2015? 

Former Thunder Bay MP Jim Rafferty has said he will run provincially. https://www.tbnewswatch.com/local-news/rafferty-to-run-provincially-for-...
