Rally at Queen’s Park encourages Torontonians to fight against far-right groups and condemn white supremacy.
Anti Israel gangs are planning on gathering at the Israeli Consulate in Toronto for a “Day of Rage”. They will be calling for the destruction of Israel.
He took to Twitter to share the images, and Indian Twitterati can’t keep calm. Many Indians living in Canada and elsewhere lauded the PM’s gesture. Many others too came forward and praised him for religious inclusivity.
In some places that’s called cultural appropriation.
Mayor John Tory gave voice to their common dread. In words that should have their own statue: “We just can’t have people decide to go out to Home Depot and build a staircase in a park because that’s what they would like to have.”
Of course they can’t. Letting citizens do useful and obvious things in their own neighbourhoods, at extreme savings because that’s what they would like to do … what a horror. Why, that reeks of initiative, neighbourhood pride, resourcefulness, enterprise, community spirit, and trimming the city’s public works budget!
Police say the seven-year-old and his mom were leaving track level via an escalator around 8 p.m. when the boy was approached from behind and allegedly assaulted.
At first I thought, “He doesn’t look like a typical resident of Toronto.”
Then I realized, “Actually, yes he does.”
The maverick Toronto handyman who erected a $550 set of stairs in a community park says the city is going to tear them down and build a more expensive replacement that meets its construction standards.
Retired mechanic Adi Astl said he took it upon himself to install the steps after several neighbours fell down the steep muddy slope that served as a shortcut to a community garden in Tom Riley Park, in Etobicoke, Ont.
The City of Toronto has given itself three years to make the cut as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers, part of its newly passed climate change strategy, TransformTO.
A group of Black Lives Matters protesters took over a stage at the Montreal International Jazz Festival Sunday afternoon, chanting “Jazz is Black.”
The uncomfortable disparity between the idyllic vision of Canada celebrated Saturday and the lived realities of many in Indigenous communities was on sharp display in Toronto this afternoon.
On the eve of Dominion Day, Toronto Mayor John Tory, along with the City of Toronto’s Newcomer Office and COSTI Immigrant Services, hosted a pre-Canada Day picnic for Syrian refugees.
A woman was arrested on Saturday after she allegedly threatened people with a knife at a Scarborough hardware store while reportedly expressing support for the Islamic State group, CP24 has learned.
Pride Toronto bent over backwards for Black Lives Matter-Toronto (BLM) and instigated a highly-controversial ban on police involvement in the June 25 parade, because apparently, some members of the LGBTQ community find the police presence in the parade “threatening” and “intimidating.”
So said Pride executive director, Olivia Nuamah at City Hall on May 7.
We all knew that the so-called “intimidated” were the same BLM bullies who hijacked last year’s parade and their ragtag group of fringe leftist supporters who have swallowed the “intersectionality…I’m more oppressed than you” Kool-Aid.
However, Nuamah also made it clear that the sight of Toronto police in uniform protecting BLMers and other marchers was not the least bit intimidating and least of all, the idea of having that $500,000-plus protection being provided free of charge to Pride.
The decision, naturally, has divided Toronto’s LGBTQ community and that — coupled with the lack of public support of the police by Mayor John Tory — many councillors and absolute silence by our lesbian Premier has led many to opt to boycott this year’s parade.
Instead, several Toronto police officers have opted to take up New York City up on their offer to march in their parade on June 25.
After a day-long debate at council a week ago, 27 councillors and Mayor John Tory caved completely and rejected the notion of withholding this year’s $260,000 grant to Pride until officials agreed to allow at least a few police march in uniform.
And what has BLM done? Slapping everyone who kowtowed to them in the face — they’ve opted not to march this year.
I repeat, the group at the centre of this inane maelstrom, will not be marching in the parade on June 25.
Pride Toronto says that the final deadline for groups to register to march in this year’s parade was May 30, and Black Lives Matter did not reach out to indicate that they wished to attend.
It wasn’t long ago that University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson’s future seemed somewhat in doubt. He rose to prominence — many would say notoriety — last autumn with his public refusal to use transgender and non-binary students’ pronouns of choice: “xe,” “zir” and “they,” for example. It was part of a multi-pronged YouTube campaign against political correctness and “compelled speech,” and against federal legislation that would make gender expression and gender identity prohibited grounds for discrimination.
