Media Advisory - Lights installed at mural at Bathurst and Wilson - adjacent to Highway 401
A mural depicting diversity in the community that is located on the southeast corner of Bathurst St. and Wilson Ave. (on the retaining wall adjacent to Highway 401), will be illuminated for the first time on the evening of Thursday, July 3.

Date: Thursday, July 3
Time: 9:15 p.m.
