Rob Ford has made it clear that he supports a ramped up effort to enforce anti postering measures in this City. Even the Supreme Court of Canada has accepted the fact that this form of communicating information should be protected but the present Mayor is not known for his devotion to issues of equality rights.
OCAP has used postering in the downtown east as a key way of building events and raising issues in this low income community for well over twenty years. Now, our members who poster are being ticketed and even threatened with arrest. Poor people can’t take up newspaper ads or rent billboards. Postering is a vital outreach tool that we can’t allow them to take from us.
OCAP has opened a shelter at City Hall and we need your help to defend the space we've taken. We are being told that they will try
to clear us out by 9:30pm. We need large numbers if we are going to keep this shelter open!
Bring food, drinks and any other supplies you may have. Spread the word! No more homeless deaths!

Dear OCAP members and supporters,
In this year's budget, due to be brought to Council on Tuesday, the
City of Toronto is once again targeting the poor of this city for
cutbacks. While shelters are at capacity and homelessness is on the
rise (especially as we face provincial cuts), the City is planning to
cut approximately 115 shelter beds and to eliminate the Personal Needs
Allowance (PNA) for homeless people in those shelters. PNA is being
uploaded to the Province meaning people in shelters will now be told
to apply for the 'basic needs' portion of welfare (OW). However, many
people, especially those without the necessary I.D, are sure to left
with literally no income at all.
