BEST CITY INI­TIA­TIVE

NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - City Scape -

CLEAN AND BEAU­TI­FUL CITY The green bin com­post­ing pro­gram has, un­like any ef­fort since the cre­ation of the Task Force to Bring Back the Don in 1989, fired our eco imag­i­na­tion. And on a po­lit­i­cal level, the City Of Toronto Act is per­haps the most im­por­tant po­lit­i­cal ini­tia­tive un­der­taken by coun­cil since the found­ing of Toronto in 1834. But it’s vi­sion that makes a city great. And on that front, the mayor’s Clean And Beau­ti­ful City cam­paign is about more than just clean­ing up lit­ter and graf­fiti and putting up hor­ti­cul­tural dis­plays. It’s about, as the mayor re­minds us, fos­ter­ing civic pride and public en­gage­ment. It’s about re­shap­ing our ur­ban land­scape. It’s about de­spis­ing medi­ocrity and think­ing big. It’s about mak­ing Toronto spec­tac­u­lar.
