Earlier this month, a petition was launched by Kingston Coalition Against Poverty calling on Kingston city council to open new shelter spaces with at least 20 new beds.

The Coalition said it believes city council when they say that they are serious about influencing positive change, and wanted to help them do that ‘by letting them know that the public support is there to open new shelter space.’
