Toronto To Survey Homeless


From yesterday's Toronto Star:

The city of Toronto is seeking volunteers to conduct its first ever census of homeless people.
The survey, called the street needs assessment, will take place across the city on April 19. So far, more than 600 people have volunteered to comb Toronto's streets that night, counting homeless people and conducting an eight-minute survey to assess their needs. In all, the city is looking for 1,500 recruits.

I think it's about time for Toronto to start doing something about our poverty problem, but is a $90,000 fact finding mission really the way to go about it?
Anyone interested in volunteering can call 416-397-4401 or email streetneedsassessment@toronto.ca.
