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…
