Tuesday, November 22nd
meet at St. James Park (Occupy Toronto site) at King St. East & Jarvis
march to Attorney General of Canada at 130 King St. West
Tuesday November 22, is National Housing Day. Between 150,000– 300,000 people are homeless in Canada, and millions more are living in inadequate or unaffordable housing. Any yet, Canada is the only major industrialized country without a national housing program. Aboriginal peoples, racialized communities, people with disabilities, women, seniors and other marginalized groups are disproportionately affected by housing insecurity. On National Housing Day join the Right to Housing Coalition for a rally to demand a national housing strategy and to support the Charter challenge to end homelessness.
