On August 2, 2012, the Social Planning Toronto York office, in collaboration with a coalition of agencies serving York South-Weston, organised a COMMUNITY FORUM ON SAFETY, VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. About 100 people represented the full diversity of the community. They ranged from newcomers to long standing residents, staff from small ethno-specific organizations to managers from large institutions including the City of Toronto, young teenagers to grandparents, police and politicians (MPPs from York South-Weston and Davenport Ridings, the Councillor for Ward 12, and a representative from the York South-Weston MP’s office). People spoke passionately about the recent violent incidents, the root causes of violence, and other issues the community is facing.
