(Toronto) Global Toronto viewers will be joining News Hour anchor Leslie Roberts for a weekly visit to many of the unique and unknown districts, vibrant neighbourhoods and growing towns that circle the GTA in Hot Neighbourhoods, Cool Communities, a new weekly feature airing Tuesdays on Global Toronto’s News Hour at 6 pm. Over the next few months, Roberts will explore the unique mosaic of our neighbourhoods and cities, and the first stop will be Scarborough’s little-known lakeside neighbourhood of Cliffside on Tuesday, September 22.

Here’s where Leslie Roberts is headed:

“I’m really excited to explore the neighbourhoods and towns all around us, as we have many hidden gems here,” Roberts said. “Toronto is home to some of the most diverse and vital communities in the country. This series is designed to investigate what makes them special and we’ll look at the factors that are shaping these communities including issues like development and preservation, effects of economic downswing, and local controversies.”

The Hot Neighbourhoods, Cool Communities itinerary will follow Leslie Roberts throughout the GTA exploring a number of Toronto’s districts, some tucked-away, others in transition, but all very lively. He’ll explore some of the fast-growing, often historical communities fanning out beyond the GTA in all directions.

“The goal of the series is to bring News Hour viewers a fresh look at the dynamic and changing parts of our urban landscape” says Ward Smith, News Director, Global Toronto. ‘”We think it’s a great way for Leslie to connect with our viewers as he will personally meet a cross-section of residents in each area and hear what they have to say about where they live.”

Hot Neighbourhoods, Cool Communities with Leslie Roberts begins on Tuesday, September 22 on Global Toronto’s News Hour at 6pm.
