It’s good news for Toronto restaurant owners and those who enjoy dining al fresco.
Members of the Mayor John Tory’s executive committee have approved a plan to make CafeTO permanent and waive permit fees for the program next year.
The report now goes to full Toronto City Council on November 9th and 10th.
