Homeless advocates relaunch lawsuit over COVID-19 safety at Toronto shelters, say city hasn’t complied with settlement

Description (Dublin Core)

"Toronto’s homeless advocates have relaunched a lawsuit against the city over unsafe shelter conditions.

"In a notice of motion filed Friday, a coalition of public-interest groups alleges that the city has failed to follow a settlement agreement meant to ensure physical distancing standards within the shelter system.

"The lawsuit, first launched earlier this year, alleges the city put people’s lives at risk amid the pandemic by not following public health distancing recommendations."
