Toronto Mayor David Miller and Police Chief Bill Blair will join Toronto
cricketers in a celebration of the game of cricket, a sport that is fast
becoming popular among many Torontonians, especially youngsters, and connects
Toronto’s vastly diverse communities.

The Bell Canada Junior Cricket competition for children under 12 and youth
under 17 will be followed by the feature event of the day — Toronto Police
Services versus Toronto City Hall. Mayor Miller will ceremonially step out to
the cricket ground leading the City team and Chief Blair will lead the Police
team to the ground.
