A few items from the latest Toronto Public Space Committee (TPSC) newsletter:
- The TPSC is campaigning to get “truck billboards” off Toronto’s streets. These trucks drive around the city at the busiest times causing congestion, adding to smog and visual pollution.
- BikeFriday is an initiative to promote bike events happening in Toronto on the last Friday of every month, with the aim of turning that day into a de facto “Bike Day” that happens once per month.
- Visual pollution: have you noticed that advertising messages have become more prevelant throughout the city? IllegalSigns.ca is a grassroots community-based team of volunteers who fight illegal billboards. Here is one of several illegal billboards within Corktown.
