This started over some personal angst about not being approved yet for the TCHC media contact list and noticing that TCHC had the audacity to pull off a press conference in the hood just east of me. When I saw the clips on the evening news I noticed over the shoulders of the politicians that the exteriors of the townhouse units weren't finished.
Then up pops this post on Facebook with a selection of photos attached that reads in part- "The homes are part of Toronto Community Housing’s commitment to clean, safe homes for tenants." I just had to go see for myself.
On the one hand, I wasn't disappointed because I came home with pictures of exactly the opposite of a clean and safe neighbourhood. On the other, I was hugely disappointed because of what appears to be complete construction chaos.

Try living in this while construction is going on all around you..That is exactly what i had to do as i had lived in one of the units that is being "repaired:. We had no access to our backyards for 3 years prior to construction starting and then to be told we had to be relocated because our units were not safe. We only had 4 months to be able to find another temporary place . Looks like no work has progressed in the 8 months that i have left and they advised us that we should be able to return to our units at the end of the new .. What a joke TCHC has become...
