Save the Foundry

The Dominion Foundry complex is one of the last surviving remnants of the West Don Lands’ industrial heritage.  Even though these buildings are listed as Heritage Buildings by the City of Toronto, they were scheduled for demolition by the provincial government. without notifying the local City Councillor, or the local MPP.  The land is owned by the province of Ontario, but this does not excuse disregarding the wishes of the community and bypassing local planning. 

I support our community’s effort to preserve this part of our heritage, and I am fully committed to working to save the Foundry from demolition and to respect local planning.

The Inconvenient Truth about Civil Disobedience

The theme of this year’s Black History Month is “Canadians of African Descent: Going forward, guided by the past”. It is a time when Black Canadians reflect on how far we have come, and how far we still need to go. As this year’s celebrations draw to a close, I cannot help but see the parallels between my people’s history and that of Indigenous Peoples.
