Toronto’s ombudsman says the city provided “outdated, inaccurate and inconsistent” information during this winter’s shelter crisis.

Susan Opler’s new report says, in at least two instances, that city officials provided incorrect information about the capacity at the Better Living Centre — an emergency respite centre opened to homeless people amid a period of extreme cold weather that started in late December.

“It is only reasonable to infer that they gave out this sort of misinformation in more instances than just the ones we investigated,” Opler said in a news release.
