PARKing Day Toronto: Students mark global day for public use of city streets by taking over Toronto parking spot – featuring PhD candidates Kelly Gregg and Sneha Mandhan and geography undergraduate students
“We think of Toronto as being a global city. Yet this is a global initiative that’s unrepresented here,” says Kelly Gregg, a PhD candidate in the department of geography and planning in the Faculty of Arts & Science. She was also the course instructor who assigned the parking day proposal last term.
“The city needs more public space,” says Mandhan. “At least in downtown there’s a lot of scope for reducing the footprint of cars and reclaiming some of that space for people.”
