Speakers Corner


Speakers Corner. The name itself brings back a flood of memories: The Barenaked Ladies, Mike Myers, The Devil’s Advocates, the impromptu marriage proposals, rants and raves, songs and skits.

It was social media, before social media. But there was no hiding behind a keyboard. You plopped your coin into the slot and faced the world head-on, because you had something to say and your voice mattered.

It still does.

That’s why we’ve brought Speakers Corner back. The little booth on Queen Street West may be gone, but Speaker’s Corner was never about a booth. It was about connecting and sharing, and giving people from all walks of life a chance to be seen and heard.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything about our lives, and school is no exception. The province’s back-to-school plan has led to a slew of questions and mounting anxiety for parents, students and educators as they prepare to enter unchartered waters. We want to hear your thoughts about the return to the classroom in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Are you scared? Confident? Will you be keeping your kids at home?
