Only in Toronto

2007 July 21


Signs on Palmerston Avenue, between Dundas and Queen.

In doing a bit of research into these signs, and hence By-law 522-78, I found similar pictures on a bunch of other blogs.  Apparently a lot of other people are as confused as I am.  I actually found out very little.  The City of Toronto’s website gives no insight as to what exactly By-law 522-78 says, or why it came to be in the first place [obviously someone who hates kids with pull in City Hall made a phone call.]  I think there are archives of all the old by-laws somewhere – I might look into it at a further date.  What I could find out is that these signs date back to at least 1993.  Hopefully there have been generations of kids breaking this law. 

Fucking fascists.
