TORONTO, ON – In the final panel/discussion of the popular Toronto in Question series hosted by U of T’s Cities Centre, entitled “Toronto in Question: Exploring the Answers” three outstanding local activists/experts survey the urban policy landscape, and consider possible future directions for the City of Toronto.
This academic year, Cities Centre hosted a number of public events intended to bring a balanced and objective perspective to some important issues that are being widely discussed across Toronto. These events, which featured both experienced academic researchers and well-known urban policy practitioners, have covered such questions as: Is Toronto Broke?, Moving People, City Building, Gentrification and Inequality, Citizen Participation and Governance, and Arts and Culture.
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at Innis Town Hall, University of Toronto, 2 Sussex Ave.
Speakers Alan Broadbent (Avana Capital Corporation and Maytree Foundation), Tanzeel Merchant (DiverseCity Fellow and Board Member, Heritage Toronto) and Armine Yalnizyan (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives) will animate a discussion of this topic.
