About me

From my earliest activism against the racist apartheid regime to today supporting workplace activists creating safer and healthier workplaces, it’s been my life’s work to build community-based coalitions and work with others for political change.

Without doubt, austerity, inequality and environmental destruction are biggest challenges of our times — and I am lucky to be able to give my thoughts about how we can approach them. I post a lot of that commentary on this site.

I’m also a long-time resident in the Parkdale-High Park area of Toronto where many people contribute to the community everyday — in activist groups, school groups and residents’ groups. It’s that kind of engagement that strengthens everyone in the community.
