Help name this Toronto street

Posted by Staff / March 14, 2014

name toronto streetNot a fan of names like, Coxwell, Pharmacy Avenue or Orfus Road? Now's your chance to leave a mark on Toronto maps of the future by coming up with a name for one of Toronto's newest streets.

It's all part of the Help Name a Toronto Street competition just unveiled by Waterfront Toronto. Remember that massive Bayside development we wrote about last year? Turns out there's going to be a new street running between it and the lake that needs a name. Send them your suggestions between now and March 27th but, remember, names with the words lakeside, beach or thisistoofarawalkfromthelcbo need not apply. Oh, and there's this. (PDF)

If it dead-ends, then Rob Ford Way more or less suggests itself, no?

I would name the street Trillium Way, in honour of the ferry boat Trillium, which was built at the foot of Sherbourne Street in 1910.

Not sure if the city is wise adding a poppy to a street sign. Veteran Affairs people are VERY sensitive to copyright.

I would name that street Funkadelic... so there would be a new intersection named Parliament-Funkadelic and that would be cool.

Let's name them after the names of the elephants that were forced to move to California from the Toronto Zoo.

or...

Name them after the first mayor and councillor team from city hall! Rob Street and Doug Street.

I like this idea. Since we're copying the idea with numbered subway lines. Why be original?
