Eight TTC buses and five streetcars will feature eight Indigenous athletes’ contributions on their exterior until February 2024.
Starting Nov. 13, eight TTC buses and five streetcars will be covered with wraps celebrating the contributions of eight Indigenous athletes.
In a press release, the TTC said that this collaboration with the Toronto Raptors is meant to enhance public awareness of Indigenous athletes in Canadian history.
The athletes will also be featured on posters in TTC stations and onboard vehicles. These posters will include a QR code directing to more information about the athlete on the Raptors Culture webpage.
This initiative aligns with National Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 87 that calls on government departments “to provide public education that tells the national story of Aboriginal athletes in history.”
