john tory: And the city has gone to what I would very genuinely describe as heroic efforts to help, according to National Observer. But Toronto has reached its limits, Tory said. John Tory asked for financial and housing assistance, saying he detailed his requests in an urgent letter sent to Ottawa this week. ; We've been seeing an increasing number of refugees and asylum seekers looking for somewhere to live temporarily within our shelter system while they get settled, he said. We need help, he said. According to a report from the city manager, the number of refugees and asylum claimants using the shelter system went from 459 in 2016 accounting for 11.2 per cent of the total system to 3,209 as of June 20, 2018 45.8 per cent of the system. We just don't have the resources to do it alone. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
