Description

A tile at Dufferin subway station has been put in upside down, creating an unsightly gap between the "I" and the "N".

As noted urbanist Richard Florida argues, attracting the "creative class" (e. g. white men with thick-rimmed glasses and iPads) is essential to a city's prosperity. One can do so by investing in condos, trendy coffeeshops, and smart branding involving a lot of Archer or perhaps Gotham. Toronto has done quite well on this front. However, such a visible typographical error in Toronto's trendy west end indicates, intentionally or not, that municipal government has deprioritized the most forward-thinking sort of economic development. We may conclude that our kind is not wanted here, and migrate to a city with a more aesthetically pleasing public transit system, such as London or Montreal. A creative class exodus would undoubtedly result in financial disaster along the lines of Greece or Spain, leaving Toronto a barren postapocalyptic dystopia where the subway tunnels house grizzled CHUDs pushing SUV-sized strollers full of food looted from Pusateri's. And we wouldn't want that to happen, would we?

Please get them to turn the tile the right side up. Thank you!
