Whats Next for Super InTent City

A lawyer hired by the Together Against Poverty Society to ensure tenters’ rights are respected contacted the province three times, most recently on Thursday, to see if the society could help with the rollout of the housing offer, said TAPS advocate Stephen Portman.


“My phone did not ring,” he said. “It’s sad. It didn’t have to go down this way. Absolutely, they feel insulted.”


Having provincial officials read a notice to vacate, combined with posters detailing the housing options, was not the best way to go about things for “people living in survival mode,” he said.


It is “really unfortunate” that the province announced positive initiatives regarding alternative housing in a negative way, he said.
