A list of demands was issued at Sudbury’s Tom Davies Square for the Ontario Premier on Friday, as protesters gathered to send a message to Doug Ford.

Organized by the Poverty and Housing Advocacy Coalition, they said the city needs action now.

“It was important for us and as we’re going into the Christmas season, where most people are thinking about wrapping presents, making good food and keeping warm in their homes,” said the coalition’s chair, Laurie McGauley

Allison Woods, interim director of the Sudbury Community Legal Clinic, said “the crisis has gotten to a breaking point.”

“People don’t have enough money to live. There’s not enough affordable housing and action needs to be taken now,” she said.

The group said it plans to continue its advocacy efforts, as things have never been this bad in Sudbury.
