Media Advisory - Lane namings for Macy DuBois and Al Sparrow
Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam (Ward 27 Toronto Centre-Rosedale) will join representatives from the community for two lane-naming ceremonies on Tuesday, October 22.

The first ceremony will honour Macy DuBois, a founding member of the architectural firm Fairfield and DuBois. DuBois played a central role in shaping the city's built form from the 1960s to the 1980s. He designed numerous buildings including Oxford University Press, New College at the University of Toronto and the office for Dow Corning Silicones.

The second ceremony will honour Al Sparrow, a former City of Toronto Councillor who served three terms from 1974 to 1980. Sparrow was a vocal champion for civilian oversight of the police, vibrancy of downtown neighbourhoods and cycling infrastructure. He was also responsible for the creation of the co-operative building that is located on the lane that will be named in his honour.

Date: Tuesday, October 22
Time: 12:30 p.m.
Location: Northeast corner of Isabella Street and Church Street
The public lane is located east of Church Street, extending south from Charles Street to Isabella Street.
