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.

Halloween is fast approaching, but for those living in COVID-19 hotspots Toronto, York and Peel regions and Ottawa, medical experts are advising against trick-or-treating. That’s a big change and a big disappointment for kids who cherish the annual tradition. We want to hear your thoughts on Halloween during the second wave of the pandemic. Do you agree with the advice of medical experts? How will you make Halloween fun for your kids without going door-to-door?
