Tomorrow: TPSC Naming Rights Protest

Toronto Public Space Committee Members and Friends,

Like you, I know that our public spaces reflect the vibrant history and civic identity of the City and they should not be for sale.

To send strong message to Mayor Rob Ford and Council that they should keep their hands off our City’s iconic spaces and subway stations, we have organized a rally this coming Tuesday.

Please plan on attending with a few friends. We are asking everyone to wear green in a show of solidarity.  We will be heading to the Madison Pub afterwards for drinks for those that want to join us.

Rally:  Tuesday June 28th, 5:30 - 6:30pm outside Spadina Subway Station (East Side near Scotia Bank)

·       Please wear something green
·       Please bring a few friends
·       Creative signs are welcome

Thanks,

Jayme Turney
Toronto Public Space Committee

Background:

In this week’s Executive Committee meeting, members of council referred the naming and sponsorship issue back to the City Manager for further consideration.  The City Manager will report back to the Executive Committee on September 6, 2011, particularly on the policies for street naming and honorifics, and the involvement of Councillors in the process for all the sponsorship and naming rights policies.
