Really? I'm curious to see how this turns out.
Last ime I checked Restoration Hardware is on University Avenue. Has it moved?
OOPPS I meant...."Last time"
I have a sneaking admiration for our council members who will take part in this effort. But only from 4 to 8 in the evening? A lot of the action takes place during the day. I agree that care, not cash, is more effective in the long run.
Maybe the Downtown Street Team can be enlisted to help. They seemed to have been willing to help the police catch the flasher.
PS What has Restoration Hardware, 281 University Ave., got to do with the story? Or was this a bit of levity referring to "restorative policing" in the article?
please read the story it's short and your questions will be answered.
Anyone go to this event and was it the reason Hamilton was being blocked off to traffic today?
What a nifty idea.
How long will it last, I wonder.
Until the next commercial break?
First we outlaw their ability to dwell in a public setting.
And now we try to stop anybody from giving them money.
Sounds like Operation Removal is moving steadily along.
Sounds a little like: Don't Feed the Bears. "It's killing them," are mayor says. Really? Keep paying your taxes though, and make sure that we keep spending more on military defense than every other nation in the world combined. How did the fashion show turnout?
Just some feedback on the Saturday event -
Some people were struck by the dichotomy of the “haves” showing off their best to benefit the “have-nots” they would rather not see.
One unhoused person actually used the word ”obscene” to describe the clash between the event and it’s intent – using new clothes to raise money for people expected to wear used clothes.
Two questions I was asked by “normal” people:
“Wouldn’t it have been better to donate the money spent on this to the homeless?”
“Do any of these restaurants donate food to the homeless?”
