Upon hearing some friends complain about Toronto after a local violent crime hit the news, Eva Karpati became determined to show the world that Toronto is a "wonderful place filled with amazing people." She wanted those with a negative view of our city to see the positive side of Toronto. This gave her the inspiration to launch Good News Toronto, a publication that celebrates our local everyday heroes.

I invite you to watch my one-on-one interview with Eva Karpati, publisher/editor, Good News Toronto, on my talk show Extraordinary Women TV with Shannon Skinner. Karpati discusses the importance of telling "good news" stories, how she got Good News Toronto off the ground, why she feels mainstream media perpetuates fear and what she is doing to change that.
