Wednesday April 6th:
9:00AM – press conference and rally Toronto City Hall
9:30AM – City Council – pack council chambers to demonstrate support for the expropriation of 214-230 Sherbourne for social rent geared to income housing
Hosted by Regent Park Community Health Centre Advocacy Committee
Speakers to include – Shelter Housing Justice Network, Councillor Kristyn Wong Tam, Toronto Drop-in Network, Downtown East End community members
The City of Toronto’s bid to purchase 214-230 Sherbourne was lost. However, the City still has the power to expropriate the property and turn it into desperately needed rent geared to income housing. The out of control real estate market and private profit should not take precedence over the lives and safety of human beings.
