Christie Pits Temporary Garbage Site

Temporary fencing is starting to go up around the the Christie Pits Ice Rink and outside the Alex Duff Pool as it is expected that the City is to announce that Christie Pits will be designated as a temporary garbage dump site during the ongoing municipal workers strike.  This has been done, despite assurances from the City of Toronto Deputy Mayor, Joe Pantalone, that “Christie Pits, nor any park, will not be used as a garbage dump.”

As a response, the Friends of Christie Pits has, in addition to a lot of positive community involvement and communication with the media, started an online petition requesting the City of Toronto remove Christie Pits and other city parks from the list of temporary dump sites.

Those interested in signing the petition are encouraged to do so here.
