Parkdale, Toronto residents stand up for the mentally ill.

Parkdale is a neighborhood right next to my home base in Toronto ( Bloor West Village) ¬†and I went to school there as a kid. It isn’t the most upscale of areas but it is something of a melting pot and is full of colorful characters. Recently a mentally ill man George Wass was attacked and died two days later. One of the residents, Paisley Rae was inspired to make a video. According to the Toronto Sun her decision was inspired by the always excellent Constable Scott Mills ( @TorontoPolice on Twitter) .
