Do you feel that Toronto’s pedestrians need a voice? Could the city benefit from a citizens’ advocacy group dedicated to pedestrian issues? If you are interested, come to our founding meeting to help make it happen – and choose a name for the new group. Rather than focusing just on policy, our group will be action-oriented. It will continue the legacy of the Toronto Pedestrian Committee, but be completely independent of City Hall.

Participants interested in devoting some time in order to take on a role in the new organization will be invited to stay briefly afterwards. Take part in making Toronto a more walkable city.
“FEELING CONGESTED?” MEETING
On the same day – Feb. 13 – a City of Toronto community consultation event on transportation planning, priorities and funding is being held at City Hall. The afternoon session will start at 4:30 p.m. and end at 6:30. Unfortunately, this was announced after we had booked our room at Metro Hall. If you are interested in attending both events, you can check out the City Hall event first before heading over to Metro Hall for the 7:00 p.m. pedestrian meeting. The two venues are separated by about 1 km. (This is walkable in 10 to 15 minutes.)
