More than 50,000 people signed the Red Door petition stating that a refuge for homeless families is more important than condos and demanding that Toronto City Councillors do everything they can to Save the Red Door.
Change.org said it was the most successful local petition they had ever seen in Canada. We were delighted with the support and felt confident that it would make a difference.
The 50,000 signatories made it clear to Councillors that the idea of an emergency family shelter with over 30 years of service in Toronto becoming homeless itself was completely unacceptable.
