Queen West Art Crawl: This is what makes public space public | #TOpoli

This is what a city with a soul looks like.

This is what civic engagement and community look like.

Why would we listen to anyone who wants to diminish and dismiss this? Why would we pay any attention to those who would sweep this away with empty talk of gravy trains or downtown/suburban divides?

We can do better than that, both in how we conduct ourselves and deal with one another and in how we choose our leaders. This is an example of how.
