Save Kogawa House committee goes to City Hall to ask for stay of demolition

Today is the big day…

The Save Kogawa House Demolition is 7th on the agenda list for the Standing Committe of Planning and Environment.

I have worked long and hard on my opening statements, networked
lots,  Ann-Marie has put an information package together, Anton
has recieved the support of dozens of writing organizations from across

At 2pm, we go to City Hall and ask for a delay of 120 days for the
demolition of Kogawa House at 1450 West 64th Ave.  We plan to
fundraise for $700,000.

We have been getting some good press from Globe & Mail yesterday.
CBC Radio ran its Arts Report by Paul Grant yesterday morning with good
interviews from Joy Kogawa and myself.

Cross your fingers…
