Why I Joined The Women's March

The Women's March is a reminder that there are many ways to support a positive future. You don't have to make a sign or scream really loud or join 60,000 people on foot. You can educate yourself and others, you can donate to causes that support equality and the environment, you can volunteer for organizations that improve lives of people in your community and you can make small changes in your lifestyle to better the future of others.
Toronto is Canada's largest city and the capital of Ontario, with more than 2.5 million people in the city proper and 5 million in the wider metropolitan area. It's considered the centre of Canada's banking and financial industry and one of the world's most multicultural cities, with more than 140 languages and dialects spoken within its border. Just over 30 per cent of Toronto residents speak a language other than English or French at home. The city was established as the town of York in 1793 by Governor John Graves Simcoe and was incorporated as Toronto in 1834. It's home to a vibrant arts and culture scene, the Toronto International Film Festival, NXNE, the AGO, one of the largest gay pride festivals in the world and four major league sports teams: The Toronto Blue Jays, the Toronto Argonauts, the Toronto Raptors and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
