Anderson, Ron

Ron Anderson is Crestwood student Andrew Gdanski’s grandfather.  In October 2014 he sat down with Andrew and shared stories of his formative years in Toronto, describing how the city has changed so much in a short period of time.  Mr. Anderson especially recalled the power of Hurricane Hazel, which tore through southern Ontario in the 1950s.  He also remembered the Trudeau years, including topics as varied as war and hockey.
