Mike Adler from toronto.com is advocating for the use of the hashtag #RealScarborough to promote all the great things about our community.
What is Scarborough to you?
Is it the people, places, culture, communities? What makes Scarborough unique? What are its best qualities? Its best opportunities? What does it need to develop and grow?
What is the #RealScarborough?
Scarborough gets more than its fair share of negativity - here’s looking at you, collapsed house Google displayed for Scarborough in image searches last year - but it is not defined by that.
Scarborough has lots going for it. So, show the #RealScarborough - what it is to you and where you see it going - and Mike Adler and toronto.com will share your ideas in their #RealScarborough series.
Tag toronto.com in a post on Twitter or Facebook by using the #RealScarborough hashtag to join the conversation. Posts can include a photo and caption, or a sentence or short paragraph with or without an image. If you’re including a photo, make sure it’s one you own and please include the photo credit.
Toronto.com will share your contributions with their readers and get responses from people who may be in a position to act on some of your suggestions.
