Our friends, our neighbours, people from around Toronto. Residents, business people, landlords. Workers, owners, re8rees, renters, parents, students, kids. People who love Ossington. They showed up — and kept showing up — and kept showing up. The city had booked a room for 87. But Ossington is the street Toronto loves to talk about. So when 600+ Torontonians — from nearby, from all corners of the city — converged in Trinity Park Rec Centre — we weren’t surprised — we were proud. We sat and tried to hear. We processed down to the gym — pa8ently, old and young alike — neighbourly like Toronto — for ﬁNeen minutes. We sat and tried to hear some more. We explained it to them — Ossington is Lowrise — no thanks to your Midrise frathouse — cool like Toronto. A guy who got up to provoke, provoked. A couple people on the mic feeling the powerful community in the room, got swept up in that feeling. That’s how these things go. You were there, that’s what you saw. Some in the media said otherwise. Those who like the easy story — the liTle drama — the glossy picture of the shiny building. The issues — do the players follow the rules — are we going to preserve our culture — not as much. That’s how these things go. But ul8mately Toronto knows — that story won’t ﬂy. Because Toronto loves Ossington, loves our neighbourhood, like we love Toronto back. And on this one — Toronto’s got our back.
