brief followup on Talking Back to Toronto Life on Race/Space/SexualAssault

Toronto Life published our letter, friends.  November 2013

[for the background to this issue, see this post from late September  (which includes the full text of the letter we sent).

They didn’t publish the whole thing.   Inter alia,  they left out this line:

 It relies on racist tropes about the dangers of Jane and Finch, sexist ignorance of the true nature of women’s vulnerability to sexual assault and elitist disregard for everything outside the zones of the 1%.

Toronto Life is still under threat of action by York, though, so who knows what the strategy could be (note the number of letters and the direction of all the comments).

Sorry that I do not have an e-version, but here is a PDF which might be slightly more accessible. I did ask them to publish a link to access the full list of signatories….but they did not respond.
