Housing advocates and friends held a vigil Thursday, January 10, to remember Crystal Papineau just metres from where she perished two days earlier, trapped inside a steel clothing donation box behind a high-rise on Dovercourt. She was 35.
A makeshift shrine of candles and personal messages on Bristol board takes up space by a fence where the bin once stood. It was removed after Mayor John Tory called for a review of locations and design of the city’s donation boxes.
