    How fortunate is Toronto and surrounding areas to have TIFF!!! It's a fabulous experience right in our own backyard. Organizers do an upstanding job and we look forward to TIFF each year!
    I would like to hear more from the Mayoral Candidates about The Arts, specifically funding and expansion.
