TVA on homeless camps

TVA says that more than 100 homeless camps have been dispersed by police so far this year. People working with the homeless are demanding that more should be done to help them when the camps are taken down. And, following Monday’s discovery of a dead man in a rough shelter in Milton-Parc, TVA reports on a Milton Street business that couldn’t open because a homeless person was camped in its doorway.

La Presse describes how day camps cope with the presence of the homeless and drug users when they take the kids out for walks.

People living in Chinatown are finding cohabitation with the homeless is becoming difficult. Some organization is distributing free food to people camped out there, and residents wish that would stop.

The city plans a consultation on the situation.
