And even the physicians believe we can do better. If you agree with what they wrote, contact your Councillor before tomorrow’s vote.
We can choose now to change the status quo in 2019. Tomorrow, the Mayor and City Council will be voting on this year’s budget, including revenue sources. They can make the decision now to generate dedicated funding so that every resident of our City has a safe, warm, affordable, and stable place to sleep.
We urge every Toronto resident to contact the Mayor and your City Councillor today to tell them to support new revenue tools in the 2019 budget for shelter, housing supports, eviction prevention, and deeply affordable housing. It's time to act with the powers that are already available to us to address this crisis of homelessness. We have options. Let's use them.
