#AMA Mondays - April 27, 2015 "What new Toronto art work have you been working on recently?"
Hockey Locker Room, commissioned by Christine Petroff for her family hockey Shrine
"I had some artwork commissioned by David of the @MapleLeafs Locker Room. As well I purchased the Maple Leaf Gardens artwork of the front of the building. David put my sons name on the marquee. When I brought the artwork home, I was a bit surprised by their reaction when they first saw it. They were quiet. There was no rush of emotion and "wow" but quiet They told me that they were truly taken aback by the artwork and how beautiful it was. They took some time to take it all in. The truly do love the work and cannot wait to hang it up in our family room." Christine Petroff, Toronto

April 29th, 2015 - #Social Action Wednesdays
Canadian Federal, Ontario provincial and GTA politics matter to this great city and the people who live in it. They matter to us to and we want to be aware of what's going on!
With the social unrest in #Baltimore, we are following the current top stories on this matter here in Toronto. The cost of police carding is too high! What do you think about this controversial practice?
April 30th, 2015 - #TBT Thursdays
Traffic, traffic, traffic. Under John Tory, there seems to be a focus on managing traffic better. It's about time. Who else feels that city planning in the GTA has taken a back to development at any price?
