A “local actor” talks about supporting Caribana on Citytv News

Even though the largest Caribbean festival in North America takes place right under my nose, I’ve never really participated in Caribana until this past weekend. I’m glad I did!

For many Torontonians, the first word that comes to mind when you mention Caribana is violence, whether it actually takes place or not. While there has been some trouble in years past, it’s no different than the mob behaviour at your typical playoff game or rock concert.

For me, enjoying a free concert by Morgan Heritage in the company of representatives of all races, religions and whatever else served as a reminder of what a vibrant, diverse and wonderful city I live in.

Prince himself said as much on MuchMoreMusic last night!
