Sixth Anniversary Blackout Party Toronto from Tino on Vimeo.
August the 14th, 2009. Torontonians enjoyed a street celebration to commemorate the big blackout of 2003 on Ossington Avenue.
The street was filled with happiness and live music. After a procession north to Dundas street, local activist group the Public Squares installed Praça Portugal | Portugal Square in honour of the local Portuguese community.
Then they turned off the street lights and we all danced.
A night to remember.

On April 10, URS redesigned the old city logo along the Gardiner Expressway and installed it. This design was in place over the Easter holiday and removed by the city the week after. On April 20. I noticed a new logo had been installed: 'Live Green'. Right.
Yesterday, I noticed the logo had been changed again: "Let's go the Ex." (The 'Ex' - Canadian National Exhibtion)
Well. You get the idea.
