Toronto honours Indigenous culture with new mural
  
Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30 Toronto-Danforth) will join Indigenous artists and members of the Riverside Business Improvement Area (BIA) to unveil a new Indigenous mural. The mural titled Tkaranto Past/Tkaranto Future is part of the StreetARToronto Partnership Program.

The mural reminds us that Toronto (Tkaranto) has always been considered a meeting place – originally for Indigenous nations for travel, trade, hunting and fishing and today for people who come here from around the globe.

Date: Sunday, August 27
Time: 3 p.m. (official start), 3:10 p.m. (remarks)
Location: WoodGreen Community Services, 650 Queen St. E.
