Brief Feb 12 Budget Day Action Update
We were also joined today by Tara Hird, who is 35 weeks pregnant, and her partner Brian Wellet, both of whom are stuck living in the Better Living Centre, a respite site. They had been trying for weeks to get a shelter bed to no avail. As planned, following the action, a delegation from OCAP went with them to the Mayor’s office, and then to Metro Hall to demand they be immediately relocated. We won, and Tara and Brian are being moved to a family shelter today.
We plan on being present in council chambers for the final vote, expected to happen tomorrow, Tuesday. Feb 13. Join us. #FightToWin
