“You want to pluck these people out of the only little bit of community they have on the DTES where they get special banking, where their doctors will see them for 45 minutes because they have complex needs.  You’re taking them away from everything.  The safety concern is real.  At a low barrier complex, paramedics won’t enter the building without a police escort, a psychiatrist stopped going because he feared for his life.  You find about the quality of tenants after they move in.  Whatever happens outside the building is uncontrolled. There is garbage in public spaces, needles and condoms.  There is public indecency.  What we have to look at is across from an elementary school the best place?”
