Annual Victoria Day Pro-Democracy March

Date and time: Monday May 21, 2007 at 11:30 AM to approximately 1:00 PM.

Location: Dundas Square at the corner of Yonge and Dundas Streets, downtown Toronto.


Show Toronto we want a republic with an elected head of state! Join the 200-member Toronto chapter of CCR on its annual sidewalk march through Toronto's core to protest the monarchy. This year, we're also using the occasion to express our support for CCR's Charles Roach and his class action lawsuit to end the Citizenship Act's mandatory oath of allegiance to the Queen for new citizens.

Participants are asked to gather at Dundas Square at the corner of Yonge and Dundas Streets at 11:30 AM. The march will last about one hour, ending at Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue. Maple Leaf flags or signs and placards with your own personal statements fitting the occasion are welcome but subject to approval by the parade marshals. Signs will also be provided.

 
 

Our banners in use at a recent Ottawa Chapter event.

These sidewalk events are great fun with lots of positive response from the public. Be prepared for many stops along the way to allow pedestrians to snap photos of us carrying our colourful banners. Pauses will also take place at the Eaton Centre, Nathan Phillips Square and for media coverage.

Parking is available on side streets and municipal parking lots. This event is approved and supervised by the Toronto Police.

Regarding the weather; as of May 16, the long-range forecast looks great - sunny and warm. But in case of inclement weather, please check our Event Listing page for a weather status report on the morning of May 21 to find out if the event is effected.
