Ottawa Mission CEO Peter Tilley joins CityNews' The Rob Snow Show to discuss winter shelter operations, and shares his opinion on the ongoing controversy over whether the city should increase the Ottawa police budget next year.

Tilley says the shelter system needs the support of the Ottawa Police Service (OPS) and that he has concerns about a funding freeze reducing police street patrols, as demand for shelter services has continued to increase during the pandemic.
