All levels of government support community’s call for pandemic response in St. James Town

On April 29, 2021, Josephine Grey, Co-founder of the Co-op, joined MP Marci Ien, MPP Suze Morrison, and City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam in a press conference to discuss the crisis in St. James Town.

All three levels of elected officials spoke in support of the St. James Town Community Co-op and our efforts in responding to the crisis in the neighbourhood. They acknowledged that St. James Town is in a crisis situation and in need of more support and they committed to continuing to support this work. Collectively, we are calling on the Provincial government to come to the table and allocate COVID-19 relief funding where it is needed most.
