The Golden Boy: Remembering the Child Behind the Headlines
Type: Long Form In-Depth Feature
Focus: Child Welfare

But one man saw him for what he was, a child in need of recognition by his community, and this catalyzed the creation of the Golden Boy memorial statue in Toronto's Greektown neighbourhood.
