City adds more shelter beds for winter

The mayor said Thursday that she didn’t want to be harsh, but that she wouldn’t let the Notre-Dame tent city continue if it became dangerous for its inhabitants. She has offered to talk to the remaining residents and help them find places to go as the weather turns too cold to safely camp outdoors.

Seven hundred new shelter places are being added, making for a total of 1650, plus various halte-chaleurs in different parts of town. (Anyone got a good English translation for halte-chaleur?)
