Scarborough Tenants Blog

We learn lot from our history; most importantly we learn more from sharing of our individual experience in the collective universe. Sadly, the history is being disregarded by the mainstream in order to maintain the comfortable lies that our society is a fair place for all.

If that was true, police would protect tenants and landlords without discrimination based on social status. The gruesome pandemic evictions in Toronto by our Toronto Police across the city revealed the historical fact that police exist to serve the ruling class and the corporations.

Therefore, STU stand united in solidarity with oppressed and the exploited everywhere. Respectively, every STU meeting is mandated to begin with Scarborough land acknowledgment.

The land STU stand today is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and MeĢtis peoples. STU acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.

By visiting the blog, you agree to respect Scarborough land acknowledgement and access all of its content in the same spirit.
