City park likely to be renamed after Sgt. Ryan Russell
City council has voted unanimously in favour of a motion put forward by Adam Vaughan to rename the Dupont Parkette after fallen Toronto police officer, Sgt. Ryan Russell, who was was killed in the line of duty on January 12th. According to the Toronto Sun, Vaughan called the move "appropriate and significant" and noted that it was supported by Russell's family. The park in question, which occupies the northwestern corner of Avenue and Dupont, is just a few hundred metres away from where Russel lost his life. The next step in the renaming process is approval from Toronto and East York community council.
