“It has been stated that the City of Toronto is the one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. Probably most reflective of this is the representation of 100 different nationalities and over 70 different languages and dialects spoken in the Jane-Finch community alone. Although the community has its share of problems, largely due to systemic racialized poverty, my experience is that the community has incredible riches, with wonderful people who have a caring spirit and a deep sense of community. It has been a blessed privilege to work in Jane and Finch for the last 22 years.” –Barry. Community Minister.
