The City of Toronto is asking a court to order a local man to stop building small wooden shelters for the homeless.
The city filed an injunction application on Feb. 12 against Khaleel Seivwright, a carpenter who has been building small structures for those living outside.
The city wants an order that permanently stops Seivwright from placing or relocating structures on city-owned land.
It cites bylaws that prohibit camping and living in city-owned parks.
Seivwright did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
He has been building the shelters since the fall and has raised more than $200,000 on GoFundMe for materials.
