Yorkville—with its exclusive restaurants, designer shops and line-up of Ferraris on a Saturday night—is now synonymous with money and power. But only a few decades ago it served as the mecca for Canada’s counterculture: a kaleidoscope of political dissent, free love, experimental pharma and great music.
Join historian and culture critic Stuart Henderson, author of Making the Scene: Yorkville and Hip Toronto in the 1960s, as he walks us into the past to explore a contested territory that was a flashpoint for politicians, parents and hip youth alike.
