In law and medicine, twins and soon-to-be U of T graduates advocate for Indigenous representation

Patrick Sobchak was one of the few Indigenous students in his law classes. So was his identical twin brother Curtis, who studied medicine. 

As students, they got involved in different causes to give voice to Indigenous Peoples in their respective fields – and they plan to continue their advocacy following their respective convocations in June.

Patrick, for example, worked for the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General in Windsor, Ont. through the Aboriginal Law Summer Student Program.

Food insecurity in Nunavut increased despite federal subsidy program: U of T study

Researchers at the University of Toronto have charted a spike in food insecurity since the introduction of Nutrition North Canada in 2011, calling into question the federal program’s approach and claims that it has been successful.

Food insecurity is the insecure or inadequate access to food due to a lack of money. In 2010, it affected 33 per cent of households in Nunavut – almost three times the national average. But the U of T study showed that by 2014, when Nutrition North was fully implemented, food insecurity had increased to 46 per cent of households.
