No Changes to Toronto Holiday Shopping
After months of talk, Toronto city council has decided to stick to the status quo when it comes to holiday shopping.
In a vote of 36-7 council decided to take no action on recommendations from staff that retailers be allowed to open on Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving Day.
The Executive Committee had recommended opening on Victoria Day.
The ruling from council means that unless retailers are in designated zones allowed to open on holidays, they must remain closed on all nine statutory holidays a year.
