The small blue tent pitched in the shade of a willow tree at Centennial Gardens has been Danny Claybourn’s home for the past month.

Claybourn spent the winter months staying indoors through the Out of the Cold program.

Prior to that, the Montreal-born man said he had lived in the U.S. for decades, before being deported back to Canada.

Now, after months of living on city streets he’s desperate to find an apartment he can afford with the $1,200 a month he receives from ODSP, “or at least a room where I can be safe.”
