U of T School of Cities event to explore urban governance in 21st century

The 21st century has been referred to as the “urban century.” For the first time in history, the majority of the world’s population lives in urban areas, posing significant opportunities and challenges for our cities – not to mention the governments charged with making daily decisions that will be felt for decades.

On May 28, the University of Toronto’s School of Cities will bring together urban thought leaders, policy-makers, planners, community advocates and business leaders to address the challenge of governing cities in the midst of change.

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.
