5 Questions: Loosen Up Toronto


Jamie Shannon believes Toronto is the best city in the world with great people, but feels those people are inhibited in letting that spirit shine. So he has created his mission Loosen Up Toronto, which revolves around 3 principles:

1. More eye contact
2. More easy going conversation between people who don't know each other.
3. More cheering at concerts.

And his plan of action includes:
-When walking down the street, look people in the face with a gentle smile
-Have a good laugh with a total stranger
-Be the first one to dance.
