    Regional staff ignore homelessness crisis in Niagara, allegedly ‘bury’ audit report

    Local

    As reported to the Region’s Public Health and Social Services Committee on Jun. 15, 2021, regional staff identified 665 people experiencing homelessness in Niagara. Of that number, 18% were children (aged 0-15 years), over 10% were youth (16-24 years) and 5% were seniors (greater than 65 years).

    Yet, despite the harrowing figures, and now with snow on the ground and temperatures dropping, regional staff continue to ignore recommendations related to the homelessness crisis in Niagara Region. This includes burying an audit report on the programs aimed to help prevent homelessness.

    Statement on public health website creates confusion around vaccination consent in Niagara schools

    Local

    Just as Ontario parents got the go-ahead to book vaccinations for youth under 12 on Tuesday, the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) posted a warning to social media that read: “Important: With the news that children 5-11 can now get their COVID-19 vaccine, we’ve learned of misinformation being shared that children will be vaccinated at school without family consent. This is not true, and this will not happen.”
