City names laneway in honour of June Callwood
The City of Toronto named a laneway in honour of June Callwood at a ceremony today hosted by Mayor David Miller and Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30 Toronto-Danforth). The previously unnamed laneway, located two blocks east of Broadview Avenue, south of Queen Street East is now called June Callwood Way. The event included local entertainment and an unveiling ceremony, followed by a reception at the Ralph Thornton Centre.

“June Callwood is a true city builder whose compassionate dedication to social justice and human rights has made her a shining example to all of us,” said Mayor David Miller. “Toronto is a much better place because of her fearless and outspoken commitment to the many causes she has so tirelessly championed.”

“I am so happy to have this throughway named for June Callwood,” said local Councillor Paula Fletcher. “It has a thriving child and family centre, a library and a community centre on it. Nellie’s is across the street and it is set in a very caring community. This is the June Callwood way.”

Commenting on the honour, June Callwood said, “Today is a joyous one for me and my family. I love my street, love the neighbourhood. I’ll be here every day, tidying.”
