Niagara Gazette — Back on Ontario Avenue, Brosmer said she hopes the report will motivate people in a position to create change to get together and work on the issue in a united front. While the statistics may be hard for some to swallow, Brosmer hopes the findings will draw more of the level of attention she believes is needed when it comes to dealing with the city’s poor.
”It’s sad that it’s that way,” Brosmer said. “But it’s also good for people to see that.”
