Letter to the Editor: TD Sign Inappropriate for Stadium at Lansdowne

I was disappointed to see a giant TD logo on the south side stands of the stadium at Lansdowne this morning on my travels downtown.

We are fully aware of TD’s role in Lansdowne, but this act has turned a unique structure, on a UNESCO World Heritage site, into a giant billboard advertisement. If such placements of corporate logos had been shown to the public at the design stage of the stadium, I suspect there would have been strong opposition.

I request that this be discussed with the appropriate officials to see if there is something that can be done to alleviate this situation. I have also written to TD to express my concerns.

Note: This letter was also sent to the National Capital Commission, Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. David Chernushenko and TD bank. The NCC replied that the signage was beyond their scope of involvement. TD replied it would look into Mr. Leah’s concerns.
