NEW YORK LEGEND BILL CUNNINGHAM DIED AT 87




Bill Cunningham, not only a legendary fashion photographer but a legendary cultural anthropologist who chronicled the ever-changing New York social scene died at the age of 87.
One of most loveable qualities of Bill Cunningham was his passion for style no matter what social class you are in.  He photographed not only the social elites but also artists, funks, drag queen, trans and gender queers. He photographed all people from all walks of life who have a great style. Also. he remained very down to earth throughout his life.

Toronto was built on diversity. We embrace and stand proud of our multicultural roots. 

The City of Toronto and OCASI-the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants are launching a Toronto public education campaign to address xenophobia, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant sentiments. The war in Syria has created a massive humanitarian crisis. Since November 2015 approximately 4,500 Syrian refugees have settled in Toronto. Many residents and community groups have been very supportive and welcoming to these new Torontonians and have provided monetary, material and social support.

The City Council approved the Refugee Resettlement Program in October 2015. As part of that program Council directed that a campaign be created to dispel and prevent rumours and stereotypes that undermine social cohesion and community-building between immigrant and Canadian-born populations, through education and awareness.
