Vacancy flap
NOW
A rooming house for decades, 230 Sherbourne now sits empty and forlorn, facing a church where the neighbourhood's less fortunate congregate for meals.

Why do property taxes vary so widely in the city?
The Globe and Mail
There is a large range in property taxes throughout the City of Toronto. To many, it may seem like there is no rhyme or reason to how taxes are determined — but I assure you there is.

The city recently green lit plans to revive the homes as part of a redevelopment of the neighbouring men's shelter. But some neighbours question if the plans will fix the area's problems.
