Hello all – I was the visitor from North Toronto whom you let make a pitch about getting more publicity all over the city in areas where there was just a vague impression that Porter was okay and people simply were not well-informed. Because today was lovely out, abouit 4:30 this afternoon I took to the streets at the Eglinton/Mount Pleasant intersection wearing a large No Jets poster and handing out yellow sheets similar to the one you were kind enough to let me present at the meeting last night. Quite a lot of people gave me a thumbs up and two men said they were against a bridge or fixed link. They were unaware that the tunnel was there. I handed out 39 flyers and then went down to Timothy’s for coffee before heading home. I gave the young woman at the counter my last one. She read it and then offered to post it on the bulletin board beside the door.. and did so right then! I was amazed and thanked her. They do quite a business and people often look at the board as they come in or leave. An unexpected tiny step forward!
With hope and optimism,
