As part of the city’s #NoPlanB initiative, Toronto went digital in May with the launch of an interactive digital petition that allows residents to voice concerns about proposed changes to Toronto’s public space.
Have a question? Send it to, writing on, anow.it/subx, and we will feature the most popular submissions.
Communications Team Lead for Sustainability Chris Krueger signed the petition with his friends Carly and Erin, her fiancé Chris, and their son.
Chris Krueger “If there’s a public space in the city that can be changed without needing to say anything, that’s a benefit to the community, and so there’s certainly some benefit to people voicing their opinion on these big-ticket items. I think our hope was that people would embrace this opportunity.”
Prior to May’s launch, he spent months pulling together the petition, which was launched at the book launch of his new book, “Toronto: A History in 75 Places,” at Toronto’s Bridge Community Park. (And yes, the institution with the million-dollar-chairs?)
