Case Ootes to feed and shelter the homeless
Toronto City Councillor Case Ootes is giving up helping cyclists and turning his attention to the homeless. He has a brilliant plan to feed and shelter the homeless. Ootes is calling for a by-law that would fine the homeless for panhandling. The vast majority of homeless are penniless. So this will result, when they cannot pay their fines, in the homeless being put in jail where they will be sheltered and given 3 meals a day.
