Hunger in Toronto is a tale of two cities
Toronto’s hungry are on the move.
Food bank use in the city’s inner suburbs — Scarborough, North York, York and Etobicoke — has spiked 45 per cent since the 2008 recession with a corresponding 16 per cent drop in the old city of Toronto, according to the Daily Bread Food Bank’s annual Who’s Hungry report.
Spiralling rents and Toronto’s downtown condo boom are pushing the poor — and many food banks themselves — into the suburbs where transit and social services are sparse, says the report subtitled “A tale of two cities,” being released Monday
I refer to downtown Toronto as the Apartheid Annex.
The majority of the city’s “Priority Neighborhoods” are found in the the pre-amalgamation boroughs of North York, Scarborough, East York, York and Etobicoke.
“Priority Neighborhoods” are just a euphemism for areas that contain the city’s large social housing projects. They serve as nothing more than drug fueled warehouses of the permanent underclass and as an opportunity for the political and chattering classes to make the occasional public display of their “solidarity with the down trodden”… blah blah blah.
The map below is a rough screen grab of pre-amalgamation “Old Toronto’s” borders. “Blue Dots” indicate where the white folks live.
Red Dots don’t mean “Injun Country”, it’s where the Brown folk live, and where most of our priority neighborhoods are located.

Note that the old city of Toronto, the one that desperately wishes for de-amalgamation is predominately white and Liberal-Left.
It is the natural habitat of the Liberal party.
I confess to smile at the thought of the LPC being surrounded by the people they most wish to be “de-amalgamated” from. The Liberal-Left love immigrants and refugees, so long as they live out of sight.
