Colin Burn, a corporate lawyer, joined the CRA board in 2018 and is serving as board secretary. He and his wife Courtney moved into their home on Sackville Street in 2017 and have since welcomed their daughter Caroline. Originally from Montreal by way of Ottawa, Colin moved to Toronto in 2012. While not yet ready to admit to his friends and family in Ottawa and Montreal that he is a “Torontonian”, Colin is certainly proud to be a Cabbagetowner.

Cabbagetown pet peeve … I think our community sometimes loses the right balance between preserving our beautiful and historic neighbourhood characteristics in a city that is rapidly changing and falling into some ugly “nimby-ism.” We get it right most of the time, though.
Cabbagetown’s best kept secret … Trick-or-treating in Cabbagetown on Hallowe’en. The whole neighbourhood participates. It has to be one of the best places to be on Hallowe’en in the city.
Best reason to join the Cabbagetown Residents Association (CRA) … Helping to give back to the neighbourhood community
