Homeless Canadians living Under an Overpass

[While third world athletes enjoy lavish athlete’s village at PanAm]

 Photos above: on left a homeless makeshift shelter near downtown Toronto.  On the right, foreign athletes enjoying the brand new athletes village in Toronto. It looks like priorities are questionable.

$2.5 billion in spending by the province of Ontario.  The province is already over $288 billion in debt and has had its credit rating changed to negative. We have over 50,000 homeless in Ontario and a premier who says that Ontario has no money to provide housing.

Looking at the lavish five star athletes’ village in Toronto, it does not seem fair.  7,600 foreign athletes, coaches and officials are living well while Canadians are left to get out of the weather in tents and make shift shelters.


You can find one such large group of homeless under the overpass on Bathurst Street. Many are Aboriginal.

How fair is this?
