Each Monday, Spacing will bring you some of the popular posts from our sister blog, Spacing Montréal. We’ll keep an eye open for topics and discussions that are pertinent to current public space issues in Toronto.

• Following-up on his previous post on Vespa’s guerilla advertising campaign in Montréal (similar to Vespa’s guerilla ad campaign in Toronto), Christopher DeWolf looked at how different street artists have responded to the invasive ads in his post Antlerheads transformed.

• Inspired by Leah Sandals’ recent Spacing Toronto post about unsung city beautifiers in her Danforth neighbourhood, Julie Fournier looked at how a Mile End depanneur brightens the street with colourful cut and potted flowers throughout the summer season.

• An innovative transportation strategy in suburban Laval looks to increase ridership and alleviate congestion by offering discounted fare prices on smog days.

  1. Won’t this simply encourage people to pollute more so they get cheaper transit?!

    Just kidding 😛
