The historic building was owned by Eugene O’Keefe, the owner of the once-famous O’Keefe Brewery that existed on the corner of Bond and Gould streets back in 1879. It wasn’t until 1963 that Ryerson took over the property.

Homeless evicted outside of Tim Hortons

Several homeless people who had settled at the entrance of Victoria Street’s Tim Hortons were evicted Wednesday morning by the City of Toronto.

Homeless people have been congregating on the edge of the sidewalk in front of the Tim Hortons for years, said a longtime member of the Ryerson Security team. Recently, a tent was put up there, as well as a makeshift milk-crate platform bed.
