JournalistSi: Pop-Up Homeless Shelters in Toronto

This morning I took a walk down Bloor Street West here in Toronto and came across a flotilla of parked police cruisers. In the line was a car from junky Global News. Like any good accidental journalist/photog, I asked: "What's the special occasion?"

"(An action) group is erecting a homeless shelter." At the foot of 1 Bedford Place, misplaced condo tower of the "Annex" neighbourhood.

I like to think of myself as a Good Lefty, but on the spot I wondered aloud if this is the right way to go about such things: at the base of a tower of affluence. There's my answer. Also: Toronto Mayor John Tory has a condo in this building.
