RE: --WALK IN MOTION --
Dear Michael, Frances and Mike:
On August 13,2013 the Board won’t be dealing with the Death of Sammy Yatim and
the circumstances surrounding the case . Understood. Nevertheless, I do have anurgent matter to the Board.Would you request the chair of the T.P.S Mr ALok Mukherjee to add to the agendaof August 13, 2013 the following Walk in item:
ITEM :MOBILITY INTERVENTION CRISIS TEAMS and T.C.H.C Residents
Why? in view of the tragedy of last July 26th 2013 on Toronto Streets by membersof the T.P.S a young man died unnecessarily, He appears to have had a mentalcrisis..and no M.I.C.T were in the scene.Remember , T.C.H.C is regularly patrol by members of the T.P.S at different hours of the day, whom you have give them "Permission" to enter T.C.H.C properties via the"letter of the Landlord".Residents/ Staff of T.C.H.C are not aware that this teams/units are to be called incase of an event in which a resident is experiencing a mental crisis.We need to SAVE lives. Precious lives of Toronto Taxpayers.HEALTH CANADA statistic shown that 1 on 5 Canadians suffer from some type of mental illnesses.
