Aparita Bhandari, one of our dedicated Scarborough reporters, listens to community members without an agenda before reporting. Residents here tell her there’s a lot to love about our community — but that’s not usually what they see in the media. They’re frustrated by the excessive coverage of crime and lack of context in these stories.
Collaboration is the foundation of everything we do. We work with locals who are invested in Scarborough.

Scarborough Discourse strives to bring community together wherever possible. At Story Circles, we engage community members about issues they care about, like transit and arts and culture. Unlike traditional media, which tells readers what topics they should care about, our story ideas are surfaced directly from community. You tell us what you care about; we listen and report.
