No Salvation As The Tides Shift.


The Salvation Army thrift store on Parliament Street, Toronto will leave a hole in the community on May 30, when it closes for good; or should that be for bad? They cannot afford a ''substantial rent increase.'' 

The fact that the area is being turned into condo's, of course, is immaterial. The store for many years provided the poor affordable clothes, household items, toys, and in general, goods they couldn't afford elsewhere. It was also a hangout for residents and a place for emotional support. 

Soon the poor in the area will themselves be unable to live in ''condo city.'' It ain't getting any easier folks.
For socialism, 
Steve, Mehmet, John & all contributing members of the SPC.
