Happening at Allen Gardens in Toronto RIGHT NOW. City workers trashing perfectly good sleeping bags and tents, intentionally breaking tent poles so they can't be reused, knowing full well they will turn away another 200+ people from shelter spaces today and tonight.

Every week, @cityoftoronto destroy people's homes, trash their property. Every time you are outside and witness somebody living on the sidewalk, on the grass - remember that they most likely *had* something that offered them shelter from the elements. #SocialMurder
The little girl supervising the destruction of shelters, is quite sure she is on the correct path. She works for the city after using a position of advocacy to gain entry. Seems it went to her head. 💔
Where the fuck are people supposed to go?
This is disgusting. Shame on @JohnTory for allowing this to happen.
Today is my birthday! I'm 25! If you want to give me a gift, please donate to this account (paypal.com/paypalme/beads…, they seem to do actual good work) or another similar thing!
That could be me in that tent by the time im 30!
Zero tents is not a zero homelessness policy and so very cruel. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

i hope people start fuckin up THEIR homes since they seem to not care.
Imagine showing up for work and being told that your job today is to go destroy the last few belongings of homeless people that keep them warm on a cold day, and THEN FUCKING DOING IT!? Are they proud of themselves? Holy shit!
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Disgusting. This is evil. How can they live with themselves?
In reply to @beadagainstfash
I bet Belinda's salary could pay for 5-6 permanent living spaces for homeless folks. I KNOW the money used last year to destroy tent cities could have been used to house ALL those folks for a year. Toronto is better than this. Even Belinda knows it.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Disgusting. Just fucking wow.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Our parks, ravines and public spaces cant be used to house people.
These workers are heartless fucking scum and deserve nothing but scorn for the rest of their lives.
Toronto destroying people's property is a deliberate act of terrorism. The same sort of brutality that has been leveled at people living rough for centuries.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Highly Disgusting- no shelter beds and won't build social housing. Why so much hate for the unhoused ? This is shameful
This is like some kind of Margaret Atwood moment. These city workers ought to be charged and all of us ought to be enraged that fellow citizens are being treated this way by the city. If they’ll turn on these people, they’ll turn on you.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Policing homeless people. Homelessness. Two political policy decisions. Shameful.
Belinda Batista and her thugs destroying peoples homes right before winter reflect @JohnTory's disdain for Toronto's houseless. Shameful and reprehensible.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
These people are disgusting. See a tent? No you didnt!
In reply to @beadagainstfash
I support the removal of all encampments.
You sick people. Who is Belinda?
I hope these people have a horrible, terrible, lonely, sad, Christmas.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
They're committing murder.

Meanwhile in New Brunswick, Moncton is providing heated tents. cbc.ca/news/canada/ne…
#thepolice are not here to protect you.
In reply to @phillmv
every day the canadian state chooses to kill people
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Stop killing people! These actions kill people for being poor.
The hate in these people.
This “Brenda” person just got herself a lifetime of unemployment not only in Toronto but in Canada and probably the world. John Tory should resign as well and shouldn’t hold public office ever. This is a violations of The Charter and UN Human Rights code(s)
In reply to @beadagainstfash
No justification for this shit
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Why don't they just take down their own tents......
This is wrong. So very, very wrong. #housingforall
In reply to @beadagainstfash
This is reprehensible. Absolutely shameful.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Grotesque. And those items are incredibly difficult to replace. It's December, breaking their tent is a death sentence.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Here another novel idea: instead of #OLG handing out $60M lottery they skim $20M for housing... absolutely NO ONE can't live comfortably on $40M !!..SMH ...how come I can think of these solutions & no politicians can? #onpoli #topoli @fordnation
The city workers should refuse to take part in this assault on poor people
What the hell are we doing?
It’s going to be a cold, lonely, sad night for a whole bunch of people in Toronto.
It says a LOT ~none of it good~ about our society when we don’t have affordable housing, lack safe shelter spaces AND @cityoftoronto employees DESTROY the shelters + possessions of our houseless neighbours

Hobbes knew it: “the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish & short”
Why does anybody do this job? That’s the part I can’t understand. There is no amount of money that would make it worth it
In reply to @beadagainstfash
yup. The poor are everywhere. And yet we continue to enfore and write bylaws that continue the cycle of poverty and persecution. Is YEGCC about building bike lanes and soccer centers or is about setting a longer table?
Everything about Belinda’s body language says she knows what she is doing is WRONG and her brain is trying to convince herself it’s not.

This is WRONG.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
If you’re going to spend this much effort destroying someone’s home couldn’t you spend an equal amount of time finding them a place? I’ve always wondered about building barracks for the homeless. Why wouldn’t that work? ❤️⭐️
People like her make sick.
In reply to @JohnTory
@JohnTory this will be your legacy - putting people out on the streets when you know there are not enough shelter spaces for them. This will lead to the deaths of more of the unhoused. We will not forget.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Imagine if a group of people went to John Tory's house and did the same to him. So fucking sick of this government abuse towards the poor .
In reply to @beadagainstfash
they want these people to die. what a sick city. the whole damn planet has a virus.
In reply to @JohnTory
@JohnTory Fire Belinda! Then resign. Your lack of compassion for the poor and homeless is sickening. May karma give you both what you deserve.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
This eviction from tents in Allan Gardens is criminal !! Where is the mayor ? Hasn't City staff learned anything about working with the unhoused ? Cold-hearted action totally unnecessary ! Tory should meditate on this as he goes to bed in his plush condo every night !
The City is also closing some of the “extra” shelters created during the pandemic. Where is the new construction of subsidized housing?
In reply to @beadagainstfash
The people complaining about this really need to open up their homes to the homeless, otherwise, they should just shut up.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
This is genocide. Taking away all the worldly goods of homeless people including tents and sleeping bags and leaving them to freeze to death in a Canadian winter. Residential schools at least provided a roof, bed and blankets. Have we learned NOTHING. History will record this.
Bro wtf this is immoral and unethical.
Well why don't you do something about it find out where that guy lives and throw a molotop cocktail through his front window
In reply to @beadagainstfash
All abandoned. Nobody there claiming ownership, packing it up, etc. Workers cleaning the trash, doing their jobs. I applaud them.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Ship em to Vancouver the problem is unsolvable
In reply to @beadagainstfash
they need to build ice huts and wooden stoves for each of you. with a door you can lock .
"this is how you kill people"
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Deliberate destruction then denial ... I call these people #shnazis ..its their sick pleasure to kick someone when they're down on their luck...may Karma find you Belinda et al
WTF is going on in Toronto?! 🤬🤬🤬
To destroy these tents isn’t getting rid of a problem.

It reveals how evil and awful people who are given a little bit of power can be. They should be fired!

This isn’t a Merry Christmas kind of action that this season is calling people to behave like.
In reply to @beadagainstfash
Why are you not leeting the people affected stay at your place?
