Toronto Disaster Relief Committee

I am very excited about the TDRC's (Toronto Disaster Relief Committee)
website, which has just opened (Oct 31, 1998), thanks to Angela Yeung,
PJ Lilley and our friends at

Others had also offered to provide TDRC with a website, but, as Tao
members were already working with TDRC, we chose to go with Tao.

I ask you to forward the TDRC URL to everyone concerned about
homelessness, poverty and housing in Canada.

The HOMEPAGE contents:

Toronto Disaster Relief Committee

o About Us
o State of Emergency Declaration
o Booklet on State of Emergency Declaration
o Endorse our call to have all levels of government declare
homelessness a NATIONAL DISASTER

I urge you to click on "Booklet on State of Emergency Declaration"

I downloaded it as a 62k text file. To download as a text file,
click on "save" or "save as", choose the directory where you want
to save it to, and then give it a name with the suffix "txt"
for example "booklet.txt" That way you eliminate all the html stuff.

If you do not have www access, I can email it to you
