Iris Canada, the 100-year-old African American woman being evicted from her Western Addition home of over 50 years, is in the hospital right now after she was served with a sheriff's notice to vacate her apartment this Wednesday.

According to her niece, Iris Merriouns, she called Peter Owens, one of her evictors, and when he didn't answer, left a message begging him not to do this to her, not to evict her. Then her heart rate accelerated and she was rushed to the emergency room.
