    1. Very difficult to focus on Yorkville Village without including other scenes, such as Rochdale, but for brevity I did so. The banner photo, showing a young Buffy Ste Marie, is actually of a protest rally held in Queen’s Park in the late 60s. Queen’s Park is a green space surrounded by the provincial parliament buildings and University of Toronto. It is within a couple of blocks of Yorkville, and no doubt gathered an audience from the Village. Ste Marie is still performing and protesting and is famous for writing several well-known folk songs, including Universal Soldier.

I really care about your opinion
