We have been advised by the Toronto Fire Department that the four parking spaces in front of the church have been designated as a ‘FIRE ROUTE’. This means that effective immediately, there is to be NO PARKING in these spaces. If you choose to do so, you could be subject to a $250.00 fine under the Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 880. The two handicap parking spaces at the end of the fire route are not affected.
