Screening of Home Safe Toronto

Friday, February 4, 2011 - 23:30 to Saturday, February 5, 2011 - 02:30

Home Safe Toronto is the second in the Sky Works series of documentaries
that deals with how Canadian families live with the threat and the
experience of homelessness.

It shows how the housing crisis in Canada is an expression of the increasing
economic and job insecurity that has devastated the manufacturing sector in
the greater Toronto area and throughout southern Ontario.

The film reveals the consequences of this "new economy," where families
surviving on low wages with no benefits, or on dwindling social assistance,
are faced with the terrible choice between keeping a roof over their heads
or putting food on the table.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
