CBC Radio’s Metro Morning show in Toronto broadcast from Parkdale on Tuesday, October 18. Parkdale is a vibrant neighbourhood near the lake in the west end of Toronto, where gentry, new citizens and those struggling to find a place in the civil society all commingle. It is home to Canada’s largest Tibetan community.
Here are some of the voices from that Tibetan community heard on the show:
