A LIFE IN THE CITY



  
A LIFE IN THE CITY
BY HENRY ARGASINSKI


In 1977 two events happened which would change Toronto the Good forever.  The first was the brutal rape and murder of a 12 year old shoeshine boy.  The second was the opening of The Eaton Centre, but these two events were linked together in an unimaginable way.  The Mall Walkers of The Eaton Centre had cleaned up a stretch of Toronto's notorious Yonge Street strip and were chronicled in the New York Times for having thrown out over 34,000 trouble-makers from the mall in a single year.  The Eaton Centre was Life in the City, and the Mall Walkers were the law.  But behind the glamorous fashion and bright lights was another world the public would never see: murder, gang brawls, sexual assault and the torching of several city blocks linked directly to the roots of the Canadian Establishment.  These were the secrets which would eventually bring the Mall Walkers down.  A Life in the City is the true story behind the scenes following the opening of the giant mall which would turn Toronto into a world class city, and the secrets hidden to preserve Life in the City at any expense.
