Protesters on Tuesday morning demanded that a blind man be given back his apartment.

Fred Timms, 56, was evicted from his Ottawa community housing apartment in March.

He had been warned that he had too much stuff in his unit.

Timms admitted that he had too many things, and said he was trying to clean the clutter when he was kicked out for fire code violations.

Timms’ supporters say he deserves a place to live.

Fred’s peaceful protest will take place on Tuesday, August 26th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1065 Ramsey Crescent (off Pinecrest Rd.) See mapquest.com for directions
