With local homeless shelters filling to the brim before winter officially arrives, the City of Montreal says it is looking to establish a new, 80-bed facility as soon as possible.

Coun. Rosannie Filato, the city’s executive committee member in charge of homelessness, said the first step will be to find a location — a space where people can go for more than just a warm bed at night.

“It’s not necessarily the traditional places that you see with X number of beds,” she said in an interview Friday.
