Man may have died from carbon monoxide poisoning because he was Sheltering outside we’ve just heard excuses uh from other levels of government that help us on its way it’s it’s it’s going to come um but it hasn’t yet the shelter system can’t accommodate the flood of asylum
Seekers according to Peele region so our shelter system is not equipped to deal with the Asylum claimant crisis 1 1200 are now in that system it’s well beyond its limits 2third are Asylum claimants this morning Global News watched as dozens of claimants staying at this shelter were sent by bus to another

Municipal leaders in Mississauga are urging the federal government to provide support for asylum claimants following the death of an asylum claimant at an encampment outside of a shelter in Mississauga.
According to Peel Regional Police, officers responded to reports of a sudden death at an encampment on Dundas Street East, just east of Dixie Road, on Wednesday morning.
A man in his 40s was found inside the tent without vital signs and was pronounced dead.
Mayor Patrick Brown of Brampton called for immediate action to prevent further deaths as cold weather approaches.
“I don’t normally call people together spur of the moment, heartbreaking knowing there will be more deaths,” Brown said.
