CITY

A city-wide celebration of exhibits, events, and experiences that showcase how Toronto got its groove.

In 1972, Moses Znaimer commissioned singer-songwriter Tommy Ambrose and ad-guru Gary Gray to create a love song about Toronto which would be used as the theme music for a new local UHF Television station called Citytv. The result was “People City”, an ode to Toronto’s burgeoning multi-cultural fabric and character, championed by then-Mayor David Crombie as a possible official song for the city itself.
