Council honours Nelson Mandela with ceremonial street name

TORONTO - Nelson Mandela Blvd. is coming to Toronto.

Council voted unanimously Wednesday to ceremonially dedicate University Ave. as Nelson Mandela Blvd. There was no debate on the issue.

The name of the street will officially remain University Ave. but signs will be installed from Front St. W. to College St. with the ceremonial name to honour the South African leader.

Wednesday’s council vote also directs staff to have the signs in place before the first anniversary of Mandela’s death on Dec. 5.
