Media Advisory: Join Toronto's "20-Minute Toronto Makeover" on Friday
At 2 p.m. on Friday, April 23, groups and individuals across Toronto will

The City is providing special litter bags for the April 23 event. Participants
in the Friday event can still pick up small and large litter bags and gloves at
The Beer Store and Pizza Pizza locations.

City of Toronto staff at City Hall, Metro Hall and the civic centres, Toronto
Public Library, Toronto Transit Commission and many other organizations and

at Parliament Street at 1:30 p.m., and at Riverdale Collegiate (1094 Gerrard
