A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto.
The role Toronto businesses need to play in the safety of our city. Providing jobs and other opportunities to young people who do not have them. Toronto as a safe city - with some caveats. Concern for the safety of Toronto. So much to be done. What has been done. The potential in the room to give a chance to Toronto's at-risk youth. The city's Community Safety Plan. New police officers. Some achievements over the past two years. Tine for federal partners to act. The responsibility and opportunity for Toronto businesses to invest in their city. What that investment means, with exemplification. Much more needed. What "at-risk" means. Not letting violence become part of Toronto's backdrop.
