Jane Creba Memorial


It’s worth making a special trip downtown to see the memorial for Jean Creba, the teenager shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire on Yonge Street this past Boxing Day. If you read the many messages there you’ll see that people are scared and angry, but more than anything else simply grieving for a fellow citizen whose life was so needlessly taken from her.

Local police are calling this the loss of Toronto’s innocence, but it’s heartening to see in this small memorial that we haven’t stopped caring about each other just yet…

    I enjoyed reading your commentary – so true – people really do care.
    Made a special trip downtown to see the memorial site- wonder if they should have a permanent marker – memorial stone to mark the site?

  2. Hi Janie,

    Thanks for your comment. A permanent marker would be nice, but I bet the folks at Foot Locker wouldn’t be interested in a permanent reminder of urban violence on or near their property.

    However, this could be a great opportunity for them to start up a sports scholarship in her memory… Are you listening, Foot Locker?
