CBC TORONTO WEEK-LONG MULTI-PLATFORM SERIES
CEASE FIRE: RECLAIMING OUR COMMUNITIES
New series focuses on GTA gun violence issues and solutions
October 5, 2012 - Gun violence in the GTA is a deep-seated issue in our city. CBC Toronto is going back into neighborhoods most affected in a week-long, multi-platform series called Cease Fire: Reclaiming Our Communities, beginning Tuesday October 9.
"Cease Fire looks at breaking the cycle of silence and speaks with those on the front lines." says Susan Marjetti, Managing Director of CBC Toronto. "To move forward, we all have a role to play in finding the solutions."
Gun violence made headlines in the GTA this summer. But in this exclusive series, CBC Toronto takes an in-depth look at this issue, how it affects people who live with it every day, and what it takes to create and sustain safe communities.
Cease Fire: Reclaiming Our Communities airs across platforms on CBC Radio One 99.1FM, CBC News Toronto, and online at cbc.ca/toronto following the Thanksgiving weekend.
Tune-in to CBC News Toronto, weekdays starting Tuesday October 9, at 5, 5:30 and 6pm for daily in-depth segments that tackle the issues. We'll show you exclusive interviews with members of the community affected by gun violence, measure the effectiveness of more police on the streets and turn to an American city with lessons to share.
Listen to Metro Morning (weekdays 5:30am -8:30am) and Here and Now (weekdays 3:00pm - 6:00pm) on CBC Radio One 99.1FM for compelling stories about a neighborhood in transition, the leaders in the community driving change, and the people on the ground making a difference.
