In The Media

Star columnist Carol Goar honoured by human rights advocacy group

The award is presented by Urban Alliance on Race Relations, a grassroots community group that has fought against inequality and discrimination in Toronto since 1975.

Goar is the first winner of the Urban Alliance’s media award, which is named after the late Canadian journalist of Sindhi descent who immigrated to Canada from India in 1973 and six years later, began working at the Montreal Gazette. He passed away in 2003.

City’s summer of violence calls for community-based solutions

Toronto’s summer of violence challenges us to enact high-impact, evidence-based interventions and public policy measures that advance fair and equitable economic opportunities and create good jobs that pay a living wage, while providing support for those who need additional help to succeed. Further, we need to embrace a comprehensive, youth-focused strategy that revolves around youth-led organizations.

Toronto has to take action to avoid more shootings

Without providing hope to those who live in our most destitute communities, a long-term reduction in violence will not be realized. Do we have the political will to facilitate such change? Are sustained community development projects possible during this period of austerity and government cutbacks? The answers to these questions will largely determine the future of violent crime in Toronto — and the extent to which Toronto residents are exposed to the type of shootings we have experienced over the past month.
