Some long-term residents at a Toronto hotel say they’re being evicted on short notice to make room for an influx of Syrian refugees.
One woman, who didn’t want to be identified, told CityNews she’s been living at the Toronto Plaza Hotel at 1677 Wilson Avenue with her three kids for the last six months.
But when she approached management to continue her weekly $300 payments she says she was told she had to leave — that day.
She says she had to beg for one extra night, but the next morning she was evicted.
“It’s really hard,” she said. “Many tears.”
