The Sidewalk Toronto project is setting a dangerous precedent for local government. What has happened over the last 15 months cannot be normalized. There is nothing ok about how we got to where we are. The responsible thing to do right now is stop the project. #BlockSidewalk
Many people have shown concern and shared a desire to see the project stopped. If that is you, and you'd like to get involved in that work, as well as working towards solutions for better alternatives, please sign up at Tech Reset Canada techresetcanada.org/our-ask #BlockSidewalk
For now, this is a way to make sure that those of you that have voiced concern, particularly since the recent news broke (see link), but also those that have had concerns since day one, can tag into this advocacy work. #BlockSidewalk
There is a clear and concerted effort by Sidewalk Labs to erase all memory of the last 15 months and to move ahead with discussions about transit finance, timber, jobs, and more. Those are not the topics that matter right now. #BlockSidewalk
Major topics to talk about right now relate to an RFP that Toronto did not sign off on. Lack of accountability, transparency, and more. It doesn't matter that Sidewalk Labs was asked to do things if Toronto residents aren't ok with those things. No social license. #BlockSidewalk
There is a tonne of power in how the Sidewalk debates are being framed. They need to be reset. There is no urgency. This can be stopped, policy and regulatory gaps filled, rethink on the RFP and off it can go again. But the status quo is not fine and must stop. #BlockSidewalk
Please RT

If you want to get involved in the #BlockSidewalk work you can sign up with Tech Reset Canada and we'll keep you posted. There will be more news fairly soon. Thank you :)
