…The rally also highlighted the threats to the Ontario Food Terminal, located in Etobicoke near Queensway and Park Lawn, where many Parkdale residents work.

[In their own words]

June 6th This morning at 8:00am, in the midst of our daily grind, over 300 Parkdale parents, students, teachers and workers met on Jameson. We came together to demonstrate our strength in the face of attacks on our neighbourhood. We made a commitment to stand together in the struggles ahead. We committed to defending our homes, our schools, our jobs, and our services. We came together with one message: to defend ourselves, we must be organized.
