Save Our Beach! Join Us on October 3rd at the Toronto Board of Trade!

💪 Our Goal:
To champion the cause of saving our precious beach, and to promote the idea that public spaces like our waterfronts are real world-class locales and should remain accessible to everyone, not just converted into commercial entities like the proposed MegaSpa.

🌟 Featured Speakers: 🌟
Kinga Surma & Doug Ford: Invited by the Toronto Board of Trade, they will be presenting their visions of how their proposed MegaSpa will transform our waterfront into a "world-class" location.

📣 What We Are Protesting Against:
The proposed MegaSpa threatens to usurp our public space, diminishing the area's natural beauty and accessibility. We believe in preserving our beaches and ensuring they remain a haven for residents and visitors alike, to experience, explore, and enjoy the unadulterated beauty of nature.

Why You Should Join:

  • Raise Awareness: Let’s educate the public on the irreversible impacts of commercializing our beachfront.
  • Voice Your Opinion: Stand with us in sending a message to Kinga Surma, Doug Ford, and the Toronto Board of Trade that our public space is already world-class and should remain so.
  • Community Strength: Showcase the strength and unity of the community in preserving our environment and public spaces.

🌟 Special Additions to the Day’s Activities: 🌟
