Dear Mayor Tory
The world-famous recording artist, Prince, passed away yesterday. This is not only a tragedy for the music community but also for our City which he once called home.
Throughout his career, he had a special relationship with Toronto whether it was with his surprise performances, his regular visits or his affinity for Canadian musicians. Prince’s attraction to our City has helped profile our rich arts and cultural community to the world.
Prince Loved Toronto and it would be most fitting that we honour his life and contribution to the music industry and our City by turning the TORONTO sign in Nathan Philips Square purple.
