MP Kevin Vuong joins the residents of Niagara the King West to call for the City of Toronto to implement a safer, more family-friendly model for the 629 Adelaide Street West respite centre. The City of Toronto and City Councillor failed to consult the community, and have refused to listen to their concerns. Instead of a low-barrier, walk-in model, the community is calling for an alternative model that is more family-oriented such as one targeted to support women fleeing abuse with their children, families, or refugees.
MP Kevin Vuong took action to aid the asylum seekers and refugees at 129 Peter Street. From lending two tents to offer shade and protection from the rain to providing tangible immediate and long-term solutions, MP Vuong has fought to ensure that the people at 129 Peter Street has the help and support they need while advocating for long term solutions so that more do not find themselves on the street.
