Feature Report: The face of Yonge street has undergone significant changes in the last 50 years. From taverns to recordshops to strip clubs to shopping centres the street has transformed with the changing attitudes of Torontonians. A new BIA initiative called ‘Yonge Love’ is trying to connect people to new developments on Yonge providing community consultations with BIA panels. Yonge Love’s executive director Mike Garner joins us at a quarter past the hour to discuss possible new changes to Yonge street for our feature report.
