A United Nations special envoy set to arrive in Toronto as part of an investigation into the standard of housing across Canada says the evidence he has seen so far is “very stark and very disturbing.”

Miloon Kothari, the UN’s special rapporteur on adequate housing, arrives in Toronto tonight as part of a two-week investigation in Canada that focuses on housing for women and aboriginals, homelessness and the impact the 2010 Olympic Winter Games will have on housing in Vancouver.
