This is going to be a short entry in my blog. I am unable to describe with mere words the passion in my head and heart that I feel for Harbord. I am not eloquent enough, nor can I project myself far enough. But I can explain why I feel this way. I love Canada , the best country in the world and Harbord is Canada. The school describes our country. From the late 19th century through the beginning of the 20th, immigrant children came to High School in this neighbourhood, in  rotation the Anglo-Saxons and Irish, the Jews, the Italians, the Portuguese, the Ukrainians, the Chinese , and many other Asians and smaller numbers of nationalities and religions. They were given the opportunity to work hard and they did, and made real successful Canadians of themselves and made Canada what it is today. Led by Harbord every  High School in every part of our city is now like Harbord, and Canada is the successful country I am proud to live in.

Short Bio: I was born in Toronto in 1931 to a wonderful mother who divorced shortly before my birth. I owe a great deal of my success to her. I am Jewish but not at all religious, yet my culture plays an important part of my personality. I attended Harbord Collegiate and U. of T. Faculty of Pharmacy. A unique mail-order pharmacy was the first of my endeavours in the profession, followed by many stores throughout Ontario. I have a loving wife, 3 children and grand-children and I am now retired from pharmacy. But what do I write about? Everything! My topics are funny, serious, whimsical, timely, outrageous, inspiring, and inventive. I promise that if you take the time to read any one of these topics – you will not be sorry.
