Persistent rumors that the city is about to expel unhoused people from the 13 shelters provided by Halifax Mutual Aid have now been confirmed by city staff. Councillors seem to think that’s not a problem.

This weekend’s video is a short but powerful one, a conversation with Andrew, one of the folks living in a one-person crisis shelter constructed by Halifax Mutual Aid.

What’s with this rule that says a crisis shelter must be occupied the moment it’s installed? Are empty crisis shelters allowed now, yes or no? Councillors take to Twitter and leave everybody confused.
