    AGO Global Contemporary (Selldorf, Diamond Schmitt, Two Row, 6s)

    It would be a dream to have a big contemporary art museum on the east side - accessible to eastern waterfront / canary & distillery / unilever & portlands.

    TMU: Law School (101-111 Gerrard St E, Ryerson, ?s, ?)

    Wait around a few years and Lincoln Alexander will undoubtedly be cancelled by (mar)X(ist) university. His successes in conservative politics and public service will be recast as evidence of unforgivable subservience to (and perpetuation of) "white" "colonial" "capitalist" "elitist" power...

    Toronto | 69 Yorkville | 97.5m | 29s | Cheong Family Holdings | JET Design Architect

    Yorkville's attraction is in being one of Toronto's only fine-grained pedestrian-friendly shopping districts. The street level design looks like a total afterthought to the design of the tower (i.e. large-format glass, cast in permanent shadow, with no signage or character). Also, what's going...

    There goes the neighborhood 😹

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    The fixation on racial delineation as a way of ordering and understanding society (minority vs. majority?) is an obsession shared by the far left and the far right. Apparently you are more closely aligned to the latter?

    Toronto | Orbit Condos | ?m | ?s | Cortel Group | PARTISANS

    The rendering is cool - but I'm willing to bet this will end up being another sprawling, dreary, car-centric suburb if it gets built.

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    Anti-racism is the dream any reasonable, thinking person would wish to work toward in a multicultural society. Especially since oppression based on race has defined a lot of our national history (first and foremost against first nations communities). And one could also argue Christian European...

    Toronto's Culture Production Boom

    They wont. Books, facts, and confronting the complexity of the world is all a trick by the devil to make their children gay communists.

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    A white man? It'll be a tough sell to the woketivists.

    Toronto's Culture Production Boom

    The same people who think Trump won the election, Covid is a hoax, the US civil war had nothing to do with slavery, Jesus was a white anglo-saxon, and Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs around the Garden of Eden 6000 years ago. Let's hope they never hear of Toronto.

    The Junction

    Dundas north (and west) of Bloor should be renamed “Junction Rd” Thoughts?

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    Shadd, Moore, Desmond & Hubbard are almost certainly the family names of the people who once enslaved these peoples’ ancestors. We shouldn’t be honouring those peoples’ legacies as enslavers.

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    Now the city can sell off the naming rights to all these entities Shopify Street? Amazon.ca Square? CF Eaton Centre Station? $$$

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    Church, St. Patrick, St. George & St. Andrew are insensitive to non-Christians. University and College are problematically elitist for people who didn't have post-secondary education. :( Frederick, Victoria, Peter, John, Duncan, Elizabeth, Charles and Isabella all sound very "gendered" for...

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    Reread my post. "Other first nations" includes the Ojibwe/Anishnaabe, Wendat/Huron, Chippewa, Haudenosaunee and so forth. Either the First Nations are consulted, or the same "City Staff" recommending the change will likely identify an obscure BIPOC non-binary experiencer-of-enslavement who set...

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    No. There is absolutely no indication the general population wants this change. As mentioned before in this thread, a petition of 40,000 names made it to the desks of City staff. That represents 0.05% of the population influencing a back-office of unelected bureaucrats. PC-progressive names...

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    IF the City plans to rename major elements of the the local geography it only makes sense that the Mississaugas of the Credit and the other local First Nations should be given the opportunity to do the renaming. We say this has been their land for thousands of years and we are living on it - so...

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    You called it an issue that came "democratically" to the fore. This is not the case. The issue was taken up by a committee of "City staff" (i.e. unelected bureaucrats) after a petition signed by 14,000 people made it to council. The argument is that we are a diverse city and this name change...

    Proposed renaming of Dundas Street

    We'll all be cancelled for eating factory farmed meat and driving petroleum-fuelled cars.
