    My name is Adrien Montoya, I’m an aspiring journalist graduating this spring from the University of Guelph-Humber. At Guelph-Humber, fourth year students in Media Studies work collectively to produce a magazine, website, host a conference, media awards, etc. all under the name The Emerge. (Below is a link to what last year’s class did)

    This year, the theme of the magazine and website is ‘breaking barriers’. I thought I would look at how the city of Toronto broke barriers.

    It would be great if I could use some of your photos to illustrate some stories or if you know any stories and would like to share!

      Sounds great. We web site is made so you can take any pictures you want. the big barrier I am thinking about is the loss of the bridge from Queen St W and Roncesvalles Ave over the Guardener and trcks to the lake shore and Sunnyside Amusement park. The seperation set the area back. I would be glad to help. You can email me at jack.pvhs@info
