The City of Toronto is facing renewed criticism for its handling of the city’s shelter crisis following a story last week about a badly injured homeless woman who spent the night on the floor of a drop-in centre after she was hit by a car because no shelter beds were available.

“We are playing with people’s lives, and this shell game, at some point we are going to lose and losses will be significant,” said Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam (Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale).
