As winter approaches, a prominent street nurse is expressing anxiety for the city’s many homeless people and their families.

Cathy Crowe says enduring the harsh weather without a home and nowhere to go is nearly impossible.

“The shelter system is full and we now have a second and third tier,” said Crowe Monday on CBC Radio’s Metro Morning.

“It’s Nov. 4th and we have no idea what the city is planning for this winter yet. They’re calling a meeting to tell us but we have no idea.”
