A thin strip of land just south of Regent Park and bounded by Queen, Parliament, Shuter, River Streets, Trefann Court was slated for 'urban renewal' by the city in 1966. Home to 1,300, mostly working class, residents, the area was characterized by old houses and a dwindling population. Faced with the demolition of their neighbourhood and inspired by earlier resistance by residents in the Don Mount on the other side of the Don River, residents organized against the project and refused to accept the city's plans.
