As Mayor John Tory said “There’s a long history to bringing us to this place today that’s a positive history. It’s happy history. It’s a happy story. And it involves collaboration between a great organization, that’s done so much work in the community, and the City of Toronto. Eva’s Phoenix is a beacon of hope and a beacon of opportunity for young people.”
