Ward 18 in Toronto is made up of many, many different neighbourhoods, different languages, different tax rates, different lifestyles, etc. The term Ward 18 specifically reflects an area that is recognized municipally and provincially with borderlines being different for each electoral area with the provincial electoral district that encompasses Ward 18 in Toronto being called "Davenport" which also encompasses Ward 17.
Ward 18 includes neighbourhoods (notice we didn't say "communities") like a piece of West Queen West, Bloordale (please...someone change this name), the dark edge of The Junction, Little Portugal on Dundas, Dufferin Grove Park, Bloorcourt Village (another name changer) and others that speak to a diverse population that lives, breathes and eats inner city life. The challenges of living in the inner city exist BUT the advantages far outweigh them.
Ward18.ca intends to explore neighbourhood life here and maybe, just maybe we can also affect change where change needs to be seen.
