A report about London’s health as a community paints a grim picture: more than 70,000 people here live in poverty, including one out of every four children. That number jumps to almost 40 per cent for Indigenous children.

The news is bad whether you’re young or old: kids wait up to two years for help with their mental health problems in London, and nearly half of those who rent here spend more than the recommended 30 per cent of their income on housing, the report released by the London Community Foundation (LCF) found.
