Next SLNA Meeting - Feb. 24
The next SLNA Community Montly Meeting will honour Black History Month with guest speaker Rosemary Sadlier. Rosemary is an Order of Ontario recipient and the former president of the Ontario Black History Society.
As an educator Rosemary has developed and contributed to African Canadian curriculum and was an appointed member of the College of Early Childhood Educators. As an author Rosemary has written 7 books on African Canadian history. Most recently Rosemary was appointed Equality Lead for the Americas and the Caribbean with the Royal Commonwealth Society.
This neighbourhood is historically where Toronto began and where many Black Canadians and Black Americans made their mark in history (to name a few: Thornton and Lucie Blackburn who escaped slavery in the United States to establish themselves as community leaders and activists in Toronto and well known anti-slave activist and publisher Mary Ann Shadd...). We look forward to the highlights of those historic profiles during Rosemary's presentation on February 24th - see you there!

St. Lawrence Market Online Ordering and Delivery
Download the following article
Toronto residents can now enjoy products from the St. Lawrence Market delivered directly to their homes.
St. Lawrence Market has partnered with Toronto-based online ordering and delivery service Inabuggy to offer customers additional ways to shop with the small business merchants of the Market. The partnership offers consumers access to the freshness and variety of produce, meats, fish, grains and bulk foods, baked goods, dairy products and specialty items that the Market is known for, in as little as one-hour delivery for residents who live within five kilometres of the Market.
Customers can conveniently shop from Market merchants, including more than 25 specialty merchants, all in one place through https://www.inabuggy.com/ and the Inabuggy app in minutes. Inabuggy’s personal shoppers will handpick and pack orders to ensure the quality and freshness of the St. Lawrence Market are delivered.
The Inabuggy partnership enables St. Lawrence Market to meet the shifting purchasing habits of customers and the increased demand for home delivery. As the City continues to work through the challenges of the COVID-19 health emergency, the Market is eager to offer this additional service that will allow customers to get the food that they need while staying at home more. The service also allows customers to support the small businesses of the Market during this challenging time.
Delivery is available Tuesday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. throughout downtown Toronto. Online prices are the same as in store and customers can shop with no minimum order size at up to 10 vendors per order with a pick, pack and delivery fee of $19.99 for the first five vendors, and an additional fee of $2.99 for each additional vendor.
Further information about the Inabuggy partnership can be found at http://www.stlawrencemarket.com and the list of participating merchants and their products are online at https://www.inabuggy.com/
St. Lawrence Market is a renowned international food market featuring 120 merchants, vendors and farmers, offering fresh produce, meats and specialty items. Serving Toronto residents and international visitors since 1803, the market is regularly recognized as one of Toronto's most popular destinations and was ranked the number one food market in the world by National Geographic. The St. Lawrence Market Complex consists of St. Lawrence Hall, the South Market and the North Market – the latter now in its temporary home at 125 The Esplanade.
Toronto is home to more than 2.9 million people whose diversity and experiences make this great city Canada’s leading economic engine and one of the world’s most diverse and livable cities. As the fourth largest city in North America, Toronto is a global leader in technology, finance, film, music, culture and innovation, and consistently places at the top of international rankings due to investments championed by its government, residents and businesses.

Saving Canada's First Parliament Site
Did you know some of the most historically significant buildings and sites in Ontario are located in and around Front St. in our St. Lawrence and Corktown neighbourhoods? So many buildings have already been destroyed over the decades. What we have left of Canada's First Parliament Site here in our neighbourhood needs to be protected from recent announcements indicating that the province may be taking over the land for varioius developments including transportation (Ontario Line). The following article by Rollo Myers (former manager of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario) is a must read on the significance of this heritage site.
