Dates of existence


Stop Spadina Save Our City Co-ordinating Committee was established in the autumn of 1969 as an advocacy group attempting to halt the extension of the William R. Allen Road (popularly termed the Spadina Expressway) into the core of the City of Toronto. The group organized rallies and marches, petitioned politicians at the local and provincial level, and distributed information materials encouraging citizens to protest the extension of the road. In 1975, the provincial government effectively halted the extension of the Allen by ceding a strip of land in the city's north end to the City of Toronto. Allan Powell was the chair of Stop Spadina.
