TTC marching with Magloire
Toronto Raptors centre Jamaal Magloire and Mount Dennis Operator Tracey Brown dropped by TTC Head Office recently. The pair met with CEO Andy Byford to finalize details of the TTC’s participation in the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Grand Parade on Aug. 4.
This will be the third consecutive year that the TTC has joined forces with the Toronto Revellers Caribbean marchers. Magloire, a Scarborough native, is the Band Leader of the group. This year he’ll be leading 11 sections in the grand parade, which will include two TTC buses and a Wheel-Trans bus complete with an onboard sound system. The group’s theme this year is Bollywood.
The TTC joined the Junior Carnival Parade at Downsview Park with a Wheel-Trans bus this past weekend.
The Toronto Revellers is a cultural not-for-profit organization, which celebrates the rich cultural diversities and traditions of the Caribbean.
