Die-in for safe streets
Join us in front of City Hall for a die-in on Nathan Phillips Square. This is a demonstration that Torontonians are outraged about the ongoing traffic deaths in our city. We call on our leaders to stop the child killings. We call on them to stop the elder killings. We demand safe streets.
It has been more than two years since City Council unanimously approved Toronto's Vision Zero Road Safety Plan: a plan to eliminate traffic related fatalities and serious injuries. Yet our streets remain as deadly as ever. Already, drivers have killed 15 people on Toronto's streets this year. We need to see bold action from our Mayor and Council to transform our streets. Without that, Toronto's Vision Zero plan is a failure.
