It's been a decade since the amalgamation of the old Federation of Toronto, and after years of study and bickering back and forth, City Council:
... adopted a new design for street name signs in an effort to co-ordinate signage across Toronto.
But if some of the older communities want to put a bird on their street-signs, or on the other hand a rainbow, the new design allows it! For "Diversity is our Strength!" Oh Joy! Such progress. Meanwhile stuff like harmonizing a half dozen zoning codes remains a "long term" goal. Way, way long term.
Some advice: if any politician of any stripe suggests a municipal amalgamation where you live, bludgeon them with a brick and run the body through a chipper. Toronto missed out on the last half of the 1990s because of this nonsense.
