Parks are not Dumps! sign now

Whereas, the City of Toronto used Christie Pits Park and other city parks as temporary dump sites during the garbage strike of 2002, and

whereas, Christie Pits Park is heavily used by children and adults, and the general garbage stream contains toxic material that leaks out into the surrounding area, and

whereas, the health threat to the community continues after the strike as the residue of pesticides, rodenticides, and other toxic liquids remains in the park close to where children play.

Therefore, we resolve that the Municipal Council of the City of Toronto remove Christie Pits Park and other city parks from the list of temporary dump sites effective immediately.

We further resolve that the city should investigate alternatives away from where children play such as: Municipal parking lots, Allan Lamport Stadium, city land in the portlands, under the Gardiner Expressway, parking lots attached to schools, and leased private lots.

We further resolve that dumping toxic materials in public parks makes no sense. Parks are not dumps!

    There are children who live in this area who do not attend summer camp, and do not have backyards to play in. This is abusive to children.
