Toronto's Original Chinatown (Old Chinatown)

"City Hall is the site of Toronto's original Chinatown that was expropriated in the 1950s as a slum. Recognizing the history of this city, history of discrimination should not be something we should be shy about. We need to recognize the past to move forward."
