Regent Park Tenant Sureya and her children were tenants in an old Dundas Street town home - part of Phase One.

As part of an initiative with the Centre for Digital Story Telling, Sureya prepared a short documentary about her move to a new home.

"It all started when I watched the 6 pm news, the reporter spoke briefly about the Regent Park Revitalization," explains Sureya. "I knew that someday we would have to move out because of revitalization. I didn't know who would move out first, but I prayed I would be last."

Sureya goes on to describe the letter she received in the mail saying her building would be demolished as part of Phase One. Sureya and her family would soon move to a new unit on Cole Street.
