For the residents of Beasley, Central, and all those lower city neighbourhoods in which the City has dumped all the shelters, social services, halfway houses, etc. - what about bringing a class action against the City on the basis of injurious affection under the Expropriations Act? It is evident that these areas have been unfairly targeted, and that homeowners have suffered extreme property devaluation/stagnation.

I think this would likely be a novel claim and maybe wouldn't go far, but it would certainly send a message to the powers-that-be that the lower city is in mutiny against the status quo.
