Congratulations to Linda Peake, Director of CITY for being awarded the LA&PS Award for Distinction in Research, Creativity or Scholarship. She has been awarded in the category of Research for her work at York University. Mentioning Linda’s involvement the article states:

Peake describes herself as a critical human geographer, exploring the feminist geographies of gender, race and sexuality, particularly as they relate to the global south. Over the past 30 years she and her graduate students have worked extensively with grassroots organizations in Guyana, conducting research aimed at improving the lives of local women. She says, “My research is grounded in the issues and problems facing poor people and how women work together across race and class to survive in grassroots communities. I don’t measure success purely in terms of publication or the standard markers, but in terms of the ability to bring about change in people’s lives.”

As the Toronto mayoral race candidates’ transit plans, realistic and otherwise, have become a key part of the campaign. Incumbent Rob Ford unveiled his own $9-billion plan last week and former CITY Institute director Roger Keil offered his own comment on for a Toronto Star story on the plan’s flimsiness.


York University political professor Roger Keil, who has studied transit issues, said Ford’s plan “doesn’t make any sense at all.” He can’t imagine any credible transit expert endorsing it.
“This has to be treated as a little melody that the Pied Piper plays and he is attempting for people to follow him,” said Keil.
“It is an incredibly deceptive document and it’s also quite childish, to be honest … back-of-the-envelope kind of representation.”

The Canadian Homelessness Research Network‘s Stephen Gaetz spoke in St. John’s, Newfoundland last month about the above-average rate of youth homelessness in the city. He cited, as a key issue, the need for the federal government to address a “Housing First” system, to provide shelter augmented by supports:

“The key idea behind it is that people should have a safe shelter and supports to provide them the chance to grow into adulthood to develop confidence, to take risks, take chances at their own pace. They need support and time to develop who they are and we have to not be so impatient.”

The journal African Studies includes two new articles by researchers with the Global Suburbanism‘s project’s Africa cluster.

Chloe´ Buire’s “The Dream and the Ordinary: An Ethnographic Investigation of Suburbanisation in Luanda” looks at how the social order of Angola’s capital is reproduced as “individual dreams of home ownership meet top-down attempts to discipline
urban behaviours.”

New African Suburbanisation? Exploring the Growth of the Northern Corridor of eThekwini/KwaDakuza” by Alison Todes explores the dynamics of suburbanisation in two African municipalities that are in the same region but producing different kinds of growth through the influence of different actors, agencies and institutions.

A recent article in The Toronto Sun looked at how the condo boom is changing the face of Toronto and FES professor Ute Lehrer offered her opinion, saying developers need to concentrate more on quality, as the quantity of condos increases.

“We talk too much about overbuilding in Toronto, but we don’t talk about the form of the building. It’s lacking interest from the builders’ side to build for the long-run. They are thought through for 20 or 30 years, but 10 years in they already start to leak. They need to think about quality over a cheap deal.”
