TORONTO PUBLIC SPACE COM­MIT­TEE www.public­ Of the many groups do­ing good works in our won­der­ful city, among them OCAP and oth­ers pro­mot­ing the en­vi­ron­ment, the Toronto Public Space Com­mit­tee has more than any other led the dis­course on city-build­ing and been a cham­pion of cre­ativ­ity at a time when our public spa­ces are un­der siege. From beat­ing back con­crete cul­ture, huge video screens, mon­ster garbage bins and the pro­lif­er­a­tion of ad­ver­tis­ing on our streets, to beau­ti­fy­ing ef­forts that in­clude guer­rilla gar­den­ing, TPSC sees pro­tect­ing public spa­ces as a fun­da­men­tal pil­lar of a healthy democ­racy. What a con­cept.
