We would like to bring your attention to two wonderful projects that are happening in the city.

On October 20, we, along with other members and supporters of the queer community, will be wearing purple in memory of the recent lives lost to homophobic bullying. Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, and Seth Walsh are just a few of the many youths who have recently taken their own lives as a direct result of homophobia and bullying.

At 4:00 pm on October 20, there will be a rally at Grand Parade outside City Hall. We hope you will join us in honouring their memory and standing up for our future. Let our youth know that it gets better.

If you are a member of Facebook, please RSVP at

There’s a revolution underway in South America, but most of the world doesn’t know it.

In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner (Argentina), as well as her husband and ex-President Nėstor Kirchner, Fernando Lugo (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raúl Castro (Cuba), Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region.
