The Toronto Star has a long and thoughtful article on policing in Weston–Mount Dennis. It’s moving and deep.
The relationship between the youth and police here, in the words of one youth worker, is “toxic.” Yet, there are much fewer dead bodies, fewer funerals, than a half-decade ago.
Thanks to Alex for the tip.
The Jane Street Hub will have a summer barbeque on Wednesday.
The Hub is a wonderful social service centre that has served Weston since late last year. It is a multi-million dollar venture that brings many health, welfare, and settlement groups under one roof.
The barbeque will start at 4 pm, and will be at 1541 Jane St. Hotdogs and hamburgers will be free.
