“New Streetcar!”

new streetcar

I saw it! I finally saw it!

It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed the simple things in downtown, Toronto. I grew up in Jamestown, just by Wellesley and Parliament, and later moved to Scarborough. As I’ve previously mentioned, I attend church on Sundays, which happens to be in the Bathurst and St. Clair West area, so this does get me back in the city. Surprise! I saw the new Toronto streetcar for the first time. Why was I jumping up and down in the church parking lot? Because the new streetcar looks awesome! How amazing would it be if that excitement happened more often.

Nuit Blanche, the all-night contemporary arts festival that happens once a year, tries to capture that same excitement of seeing something unexpected in our public spaces.

So my challenge to the City of Toronto and all artists alike is let’s make the excitement happen more often!
