Mr. Jane and Finch
When 80-year-old community activist Winston LaRose detects early signs of gentrification in Toronto’s Jane and Finch neighbourhood, he embarks on an impassioned run to become councillor of the ward. The opening of several new subway stations nearby and a confirmed plan to build light-rail transit in the neighbourhood, in particular, cement Winston’s instinct to advocate for the community and protect its residents against displacement.
