Jack Layton Way
The new ‘Jack Layton Way’ is officially passed by Toronto City Hall to honour late Mr. Jack Layton.  The new street was created as part of the Bridgepoint Hospital redevelopment, and replaces a section of the old Don Jail Roadway in the neighbourhood where Layton was elected as first as a city councillor and later as a federal MP. 
One of the many Toronto neighbourhoods undergoing a revitalization is the Chinatown  at Broadview and Gerrard. Judy Ouk, the new president of the East Toronto Chinese  Chamber of Commerce, and the driving force behind this transformation, took Metro  Morning's Lu Zhou for a tour.
