Campaign to Get Rid of Bylaw Making Street Hockey Illegal

In the 1970s, Toronto enacted a bylaw that made playing street hockey in the street illegal. But, now city staff and councilors are considering getting rid of the bylaw, thanks to a campaign by Matthew Blacket, member of the Toronto Pedestrian Committee and publisher of Spacing Toronto.

“It’s wrong to have bylaws that outlaw ‘the active and healthy lifestyle that our government is actually trying to encourage,’" said Blackett.
