Councillor Troisi and I are shocked to learn that the management of 650 Parliament St. has said that they will stop paying hotel accommodation for displaced residents of 650 Parliament St. after November 31, 2018.
Both Councillor Troiosi and I expect that Lehman Holdings, the landlord of 650 Parliament, and the property manager they do everything they can to make sure the displaced residents of 650 Parliament are looked after, which includes funding temporary housing and hotel stay.
These residents are homeless through no fault of their own. Many of been displaced for months with the building only reopening earliest May 2019. While many residents have been able to secure temporary housing, landlord-funded apartments and accommodations should be provided until residents are able to move back into their units or find other permanent housing.
