Major Road Openings

Advocacy Success: ActiveTO being extended into October

The Major Road Openings and Quiet Streets were first introduced in early May to create space for people to exercise safely and avoid crowding in parks and trails during the first wave of COVID-19 cases. This past Sunday was the final day for the ActiveTO Major Road Openings and the following day Ontario reported 700 new COVID-19 cases — the highest number yet and proof that we are headed into a second wave. We asked our Action Alert mailing list subscribers: is now the time to take away space from people to be outdoors and safely practice physical distancing?
