  TORONTO — The city’s shelter bureaucrats are spending $59,700 on a consultant to create a new name for Toronto’s emergency shelter system, says a report debated at the city’s Community Development committee Wednesday.
   The item — called “Renaming Shelters” — is buried in a 58-page report that largely details how the city’s shelter, support and housing (SSHA) officials intend to expand the number of emergency hostels and improve services to an increasing number of homeless clients.
  SSHA spokesman Patricia Anderson confirmed the cost (which is not included in the report) along with the consultant, Strategic Retreats. Anderson said the consultants are conducting background research and public engagement to develop name options, test them (through polling and focus groups) and produce a report.
