Some callers voiced concerns about property values in Leaside, while others said the homeless people would ruin the neighbourhood.
“How did you possibly, possibly get the permission to ruin a neighbourhood by putting a homeless shelter in here?” one caller asked.
"You know that these are all drug addicts and drunks. You're ruining a perfect neighbourhood."
Another caller declared herself "a very tolerant person" but said the homeless shelter was "going over the edge."
