Jose Rizal’s quote, “The youth is the hope of our future” is a definite #WTLB (words to live by). Here at Kapisanan we treasure youth and provide a safe space for them to be inspired. And the way to do that is to support causes that affect our neighbourhood, and youth in Toronto.
Being part of the Kensington Market community, Kapisanan supports the fight to stop Walmart (or any big box mall, for that matter) from being built a block away by developer RioCan.
There’s a huge concern on how Walmart and other big box stores can and will affect nearby independent businesses and those in Kensington Market, that’s us!
In solidarity with the community, we urge you to participate and read more about the Save Kensington Market campaign. Join us in fighting the proposed Walmart on Bathurst St. We need your help in saving and protecting our neighborhood.
There is an issue of increasing violence in Toronto and the youth are at the centre of it. The average age for charged violent offenses is 17, according to Toronto Police data. This issue of violence and youth safety in the city affects every one.
We need to act by supporting solutions that make our city safe for us all. Read up on information about the OurCity OurSafety Campaign and how you can join the movement!
