Humans of Downsview

“People focus on the past, the past haunts the area. When people are from somewhere else, like Quebec, and they hear about Jane and Finch, they have a bad idea about it because they only see what it used to be. Sometimes I come home from work at one o’clock or two o’clock at night, and I go home so easy, so freely, I don’t really see hoodlums much. Big media needs to focus on what is present right now. Bigger establishments are too scared to come to the area, but it’s a family community, and very diverse. There are people here that want to spend money but they have to go far out of town to buy what they want, because big stores only see the past and don’t want to come help us build a future.” – Vincent, Security Guard.
