GRASSROOTS | City For Sale: T.O.'s New Public Space Advertising Policies and You
With much of the city in uproar about the suggestion of selling naming rights of public places in Toronto for advertising purposes, a small group has organized to discuss the potential problems with the idea. Meeting at Pauper's Pub in the Annex this evening, the panel will examine naming and sponsorship policies in the city and discuss the political, sociological, physical and psychological effects it can have on citizens. All are welcome to attend.
