Park Extension Christmas Dinner

I went to La Place Commune a few weeks back and got very mixed reaction about its role in the Park Ex community .  Many who don’t support it called it a place that modern – day hippies are using to gentrify the neighbourhood ,  now that prices are skyrocketing in the artsy and somewhat affluent Plateau neighbourhood .  I found the place welcoming and perhaps keeping itself back from fully making itself likeable .  It focuses on art and communal gardening more than reaching out to the unreachable .  They were looking at me strangely when I offered to help canvas .  It seems that poverty is not spoken of . 

Nevertheless ,  there is a free Christmas dinner there .  Just go to the original link above .
