A Ryerson community member experiencing homelessness has been forced to relocate his shelter. On March 21, the Downtown Yonge Business Improvement Area installed planters in front of the Tim Hortons at Victoria and Dundas streets, the place where Jason used to sleep. News editor Annie Arnone and reporter Jacklyn Gilmor reported the story in The Eyeopener this week. Annie joins host Michael D’Alimonte to explain what happened and why.
