Songs of Solidarity by Faith Nolan

RonzigsGallery November 11, 2009Supporting Gaetan Heroux, a deeply respected, much-loved, and invaluable mentor, leader, and friend in the struggle for dignity and justice for homeless and poor people, who has been a front-line worker at Dundas and Sherbourne for the past 20 years. Gaetan is facing a forced relocation out of his office at Street Health to Scarborough. Gaetan has provided ID clinics and drop-in services, and fostered deep relationships with community members, for years. All of this is now in jeopardy. The move to relocate Gaetan away from the east end comes after he and fellow ID workers wrote a letter of support for the unionized staff at Street Health. It will greatly decrease Gaetan's access to the people who need his services, as well as cause a great disruption to his own life.
