OCAP march for affordable housing

It was a very sunny day when some of us from MAG went to this OCAP demonstration. It felt good to hit the streets and do our bit to let Toronto know that affordable housing needs to be a priority. The marchers had pizza, coleslaw, bean salad and watermelon a la OCAP in the park behind 51 division and then headed down to the Distillery district where the Panam had a booth for tourists – there we chanted and let the tourists know that Toronto is not taking responsibility for the conditions of un-affordability in the city and that the cost of the Panam doesn’t help…..We also handed out a postcard with our homelessness flag on it that people could mail in to John Tory demanding more rent geared to income housing…
