A tale of two protests. In Toronto, a temporary shelter protest is underway with residents in the midtown area raising concerns about safety and crime in the neighbourhood since interim housing sites opened up in April. Nearby, there are other people protesting the protest.\nThe counter-protesters say that people using this temporary housing program are welcome in the neighbourhood.\nAmong those in the crowd is Ontario's former premier Kathleen Wynne.\nThe politician took to Twitter to say "great communities look out for & help each other, including those who are marginalized or experiencing homelessness."\nShe acknowledged the opposing views saying, "when the neighbourhood is divided, responsibility falls on all levels of gov’t to lead with a plan & sufficient support to keep the community strong."\nWynne also posted a video showing groups of people holding signs and cheering and some police can be seen keeping an eye on everything.\nIn the video, she says it's not about poor vs. affluent or whether to have a shelter there, but it's about community safety for people inside and outside of the shelter.\nGreat communities look out for & help each other, including those who are marginalized or experiencing homelessness. When the neighbourhood is divided, responsibility falls on all levels of gov’t to lead with a plan & sufficient support to keep the community strong. #onpoli pic.twitter.com/was3WQA3Y1— Kathleen Wynne (@Kathleen_Wynne) August 15, 2020\n"I came to the community safety rally at Mount Pleasant and Eglinton today because I'm very concerned about the resources that need to be put into this community," Wynne said.\nThese protests come after a city employee was stabbed at a shelter at Yonge and Broadview on August 4.\nAccording to Toronto Police, the suspect allegedly approached workers at the shelter and stabbed a woman before running at other staff with the knife.\nThe victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries and the man was arrested and faces three different charges.\nThe City of Toronto responded to the protests today in a news release saying that residents have a right to express any concerns with these shelters.\nThey also outlined a number of steps they've taken to promote safety in the area including installing cameras, hiring security guards, and enforcing a good neighbours policy, among others.
