Clearing out Hamilton’s homeless camps is not the solution

Dr Jill Wiwcharuk: 'Clearing homeless encampments is now, more than ever, not the solution to the homeless crisis in our city. The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) has recently issued the following recommendation: “Unless individual housing units are available, do not clear encampments during community spread of COVID-19. Clearing encampments can cause people to disperse throughout the community and break connections with service providers. This increases the potential for infectious disease spread.”

It is no longer just an affront to human dignity, it is a public health risk, Dr. Jill Wiwcharuk writes.

Stop Ford’s privatization of Ontario welfare programs

This would be a very, very bad idea.

Doug Ford is planning on privatizing Ontario’s welfare programs. [1] Last month, his government quietly launched a pilot program that would see the Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Support Program administered by an American for-profit corporation in certain areas.

Emergency Services Meeting June 21 2019

Right at the beginning of our initiative, we realized it was vital to present our cause to City Council through delegating (presenting) to the city councillors. Consultation with city staff led to the choice of the Emergency Services Meeting on June 21, 2019 as the first engagement with the City. The gallery was packed as the meeting began, with watchers hopeful that the councillors on the committee would make decisions to support our cause. However, we quickly realized that quorum would be lost within the first hour of the meeting, and that that would mean we would not have time to present delegations until there was no longer quorum. So while the delegations were excellent and well received by the committee and listeners, and there were many questions asked by the councillors of Dr Jill and city staff, the only decisions that could be made were to request that staff prepare briefs for the next meeting so that committee members would have the information they need to make decisions.

On the bright side, the committee meeting sparked quite a few communications between staff, councillors, the Mayor, and supporters of #SaveTheWesleyDayCentre and provided excellent impetus for the rally four days later.
