City workers dismantled a homeless encampment in the Rosedale Valley on Tuesday morning despite calls from some anti-poverty advocates to abandon the plan.

The city notified those living underneath the Sherbourne Street bridge of their intention to dismantle the encampment last month, providing them with 15-days’ notice to remove their belongings.

According to city spokesperson Brad Ross, street outreach workers then visited the encampment in advance of its dismantling and were able to get everyone there, with the exception of one person who refused help, into city shelters.
