Homeless speak out about harsh treatment by police

After visiting a friend at a downtown hospital last month, Toby Nicol stopped on his way out to make a call from a courtesy phone. Suddenly he was surrounded by four burly hospital security guards who demanded to know what he was doing.

“Before I knew it, they had handcuffed me and called police,” said Nicol, 35, a peer leader at St. Stephen’s Community House, which works with homeless and marginally-housed people in Toronto’s downtown core.
