Feb 6, 2023 - Divest From Policing, Invest in People

When: Monday, February 6th, 11:30 am
Where: Nathan Phillips Square (in front of City Hall)

Fight For A Budget That Supports People, Not Policing!

Mayor John Tory plans to invest more money in policing the homeless by increasing the budget for transit and park enforcement and investing over $50million additional dollars in the Toronto Police while he plans to close shelter hotels despite already full shelters, and inadequate warming centres.

Tory's intention for the 2023 budget is to hire an additional 200 police. Police don't keep us safe. Police don't build social housing; they harass, beat up and criminalize poor people, Black, Indigenous and racialized communities, and violently evict and displace people from their connections and supports. Police don't ensure people have a safe, warm place to go. They destroy people's survival gear, sleeping bags, tents and other vital belongings. As a result, more and more people suffer from hypothermia and frostbite and are forced to crowd into hospital emergency departments and transit stations.
