As Toronto’s winter plunges to sub-zero temperatures, the City of Toronto has opened the new Metro Hall warming center to provide fifty of the city’s homeless with a place to spend the night.

On its opening night, a donation of 300 pizza slices from Dino's pizza was given out to the new occupants. These slices followed another 300 slices which were donated to a vigil held last week for the homeless who have died at the Peter Street Referral centre.

Zeynel Ari, the owner of this pizza shop, is a Turkish immigrant and self-described “proud Canadian." He tweeted an invitation to Don Cherry, a Sportsnet caster recently dismissed for making controversial remarks against immigrants, to help him deliver the pizza.
