Period Purse makes menstrual products accessible for marginalized women

A children’s store is probably not the first place you’d associate with menstrual products. But that’s where you’ll find a drop-off point for donations to The Period Purse, a grassroots organization dedicated to delivering menstrual products and toiletries in fashionable purses to menstruators across Canada.

Arson suspected in East York garage fire

Roslyn Stephenson was asleep in the early hours of Friday when she heard a knock at her door. As she went to check who it was, she looked out her window and discovered her garage fire.

In a panic, Stephenson immediately called the fire department, while neighbours came to make sure that she got to safety. In her 10 years living on Coleridge Avenue, near Woodbine and Lumsden avenues, she said nothing like this has happened before.
