No one should have to live outside, nor should we assault people without homes with massive police interventions. We must build a city where everyone has access to safe, affordable housing. The City of Toronto has a responsibility to support the needs of everyone in our city, especially our most vulnerable residents. Instead, I've fought to dramatically accelerate the creation of safe affordable housing. Together, we can make the City find real solutions.
I supported having a judicial inquiry into Encampment clearings. Although a majority of Councillors or the Mayor blocked it, we still need more accountability for how we treat people who have lost their homes. The housing crisis will only be solved by creating affordable housing, not punishing those without.
