In this interview, Steve da Silva and Kabir Joshi-Vijayan talk to Rexdale community activists about a struggle to reclaim a recreational track and field at Father Henry Carr Secondary School. Barry Marsh, Patricia Crooks, and Peter Dgama tell us about how a field used by the community for 25 years has been fenced off from public use now that the sports facility received millions in investments (under the pretenses of serving the ‘priority neighbourhood’). Music from Rexdale’s Jelleestone (2 Sides) from 2005.
