Rally: Expropriate 214-230 Sherbourne!
Thursday October 11 at 1 - 2:00pm at Dundas Street East & Sherbourne Street

The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, in partnership withtwenty-three other organizations are calling on the City to take over the properties at on the southwest corner of Dundas and Sherbourne to build social housing. These properties used to provide housing for poor people, but have since been made vacant and taken off the market to be sold to condo developers. If the City expropriates them, the owners still get paid and the process will contribute to filling the need for affordable housing in the area. Find out more about the event here!
