Real City Matters

Join us for a series of panel discussions about the state of our city, and how we can have more honest, constructive conversations about its future.



Duly Quoted: Bill Blair

“[W]e are going into a weekend when many events are taking place, primarily the Santa Claus Parade that is taking place on Sunday. The Santa Claus parade is very dear to my heart and I want to make sure it goes off without interference”

—Police chief Bill Blair, expressing his concerns about yesterday’s interim injunction, which will permit Occupy Toronto to maintain its current camp in St. James Park until at least Saturday (at which point the judge will issue his final decision). Also yesterday, Blair abruptly cancelled a scheduled appearance at the Empire Club, where he was to give a talk titled “Policing: Adapting to a Changing World.” The Empire Club told us by phone that Blair gave no reason for the cancellation.
