Etobicoke York Community Council:
1. Approved the naming of the park situated at 85 Birdstone Crescent as “Upper Junction Park”. Quote are marks used by the city in their report
Why the quotation marks? – well this author believes although the council approved the name, in their hearts they must have known they were participating in culture destruction. (see orange text below detailing the use of the marks)
Either of a pair of punctuation marks used primarily to mark the beginning and end of a passage attributed to another and repeated word for word, but also to indicate meanings or glosses and to indicate the unusual or dubious status of a word. They appear in the form of double quotation marks (” “) and single quotation marks (‘ ‘). Single quotation marks are usually reserved for setting off a quotation within another quotation.
The Parks, Forestry, and Recreation Division is recommending that the park located at 85 BirdstoneCrescent be officially named “ Upper Junction Park” in recognition of the important role the Upper Junction played in the City’s history.
