Who knew that in Toronto, a big city in a big new country, my mother and her family would find themselves living and working in Kensington Market, a neighbourhood so reminiscent of Krasnobrod, their shtetl hometown in Poland?

~ SHOW UP & SUPPORT THE RESIDENTS OF CHINATOWN ~

Toronto City Planners and developers behind the proposed 13-storey condo at 315-325 Spadina Ave. are holding a community consultation on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019.

If you are a resident of Chinatown and/or have concerns about the development’s disproportionate size, and the impact it will have on the surrounding community, come out, show out, and make sure your voice is heard. ????

Let’s make sure this new development will contribute to the lives of Chinatown’s residents, families, and business owners—not to their displacement.

(We’ve requested Cantonese and Mandarin translators, and have been told by the City Planner that they will be there on site!)

~ STRENGTH IN NUMBERS ~
~ TELL YOUR FRIENDS, AUNTIES, AND UNCLES ~
~ YOUR PRESENCE IS A PRESENT ~
~ SEE YOU ALL THERE ~

✊✊✊

We’re so sad to see this happen to another local business in the market, watch the City News report here! CITY TV – “Cosmic Treats in Kensington Market is closing down because they can’t afford the rent in the area. Melissa Nakhavoly has the details.”

During the month of May, close to 3000 TDSB students from over 50 schools will go on a historical Jewish walking tour of Kensington Market

Modelled on the OJA’s Stories of Spadina walking tours, and led by teachers at the TDSB’s Toronto Urban Studies Centre, students will take part in an unforgettable experiential learning opportunity. Beginning in the Kiever Synagogue, students will learn about the history of Toronto’s Jewish community and the challenges and opportunities they faced in the early 20th century. One stop will also include an interactive performance curated by the Ashkenaz Foundation.

The tours will be happening M-F with 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.
