“Many in the homeless community decried the government’s decision not to create an exemption for them, saying it added extra pressure to find a place to stay in the city’s overburdened overnight shelters, or left them little time to travel to the rare shelters that did have an open space. 

Sixteen people will be allowed in the warming tent at a time. There will be Adirondack chairs for people to sit in, as well as a wood floor and heaters powered by generators.”,Warming%20tent%20in%20Cabot%20Square%20honours%20Rapha%C3%ABl%20Andr%C3%A9%2C%20who%20died,seek%20shelter%20from%20the%20cold.
