The Federation of North Toronto Residents Associations (FoNTRA) and the Federation of South Toronto Residents Associations (FoSTRA) have worked together to organize this historic opportunity, along with the generous support of OCAD University. Major media is expected to cover the resident-led meeting. Questions from residents will put leading candidates to the test.

  • Ana Bailao
