Get a Protest Permit for You and Your 24 Friends?
October 21, 2011,
If you're planning a protest rally with a bunch of your friends, Many Toronto Parks can make for a fun and memorable base. But you better wait before you start sending invitations through the twittersphere. Did you know that for groups of 25 or more, you need to get a permit from the Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division to use a city park? There is a daytime fee ($82.90 for the 2011 season) and there may be restrictions on barbecuing in certain parks. Permits are given out on a first-come, first-served basis and they are good from 10 am to 8:30 pm on the day noted. You may not get your first choice, but there are a lot of parks in Toronto to enjoy. If you'd like to inquire about booking a spot for your protest, call the parks permit office at 416-392-8188 before 4 pm, Monday to Friday.
