A few months ago, I was selected as a thought leader and cultural maven who's support the city sought for EXPO 2025. Yesterday I gave a deputation in front of Mayor John Tory & his executive committee.
I ended up speaking about the leverage EXPO 2025 brings in helping our priority neighbourhoods in terms of transit and infrastructure investment. But really, this is what I wanted to talk about:
I obviously went off script, but my words were well received by the committee, those in attendance and my friends on FB...well over 100+ likes.
Also, the Mayor's motion carried, we're onto the next step, a privately funded study into the EXPO's benefits :)
I love Toronto. I was conceived, born and raised here. Can't wait for EXPO 2025!
