TORONTO DISASTER RELIEF COMMITTEE

6 Trinity Square, Toronto, ON M5G 1B1

Phone: 416-599-TDRC (8372)    Fax: 416-599-5445

MEDIA ADVISORY

Release Date: Monday September 15th, 2003

=20

 One Year Since The Eviction of Tent City (on September 24th, 2002), One =
Hundred Tent City People are HOUSED.

=20

Public Celebration:=20

Wednesday September 24th 2003 at 12:00 Noon

At the former Tent City Site (Cherry Street Entrance, South of =
Lakeshore)

=20

(Toronto) On the morning of September 24th 2002, police, security guards =
and bulldozers moved into Tent City and hastily evicted the largest =
squatter camp in Canadian history. Many of Toronto's citizenry were =
appalled. News of Tent City and its eviction was carried not only across =
Canada but also around the world.=20

 So, what happened to the rebellious homeless people, who like our =
ancestors had built shacks and faced the elements? For years they had =
shunned the crowded homeless shelters. Were they drawn back into the =
shelters or onto the streets?

 There are few happy stories for Toronto's homeless - this has become =
one of them. After the evictions, demonstrations immediately ensued at =
Toronto's City Hall and the result was that a new innovative plan was =
speedily put into place to house the evictees. One year later, on the =
anniversary of their eviction, former residents of Tent City will have a =
meal and speak out about what has happened to them in the past year =
since the eviction, at the Home Depot site (former Tent City) at Cherry =
Street near Lakeshore.

 John Sewell, former Mayor of Toronto, will chair the event, and other =
Tent City supporters will be in attendance.

 "If only the rest of the homeless could be housed. This social =
experiment underlines the fact that housing is the answer, just like =
people have been saying for years. This fact should be on everyone's =
agenda, particularly during the provincial and city elections", says =
John Andras, President of the Rotary Club of Toronto.
