Love Locke Day Yesterday

Yesterday was more than just MAR10 day (by the way learn how to turn Google Maps into Mario Kart this week here.)  It was also the day to love Locke Street. A day that was planned as a day for folks in Hamilton to get out and show support for the neighbourhood that was vandalized a week previously causing an estimated $100,000 in damage.


The date was first announced by MPP for Hamilton Centre and Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath and it caught on as people came out throughout the week writing notes and showing support.


Jason Thorne – Head of Department of City Planning, Transportation Planning, Economic Development, LRT, Building, Bylaw, Arts, Culture at the City of Hamilton tweeted;



Aidan Johnson Councillor for Hamilton Ward One commented



One of the stores hardest hit by the mob was Donut Monster who were also lauded for carrying on with a positive attitude after the event was visited by many who left notes of encouragement on the boards covering the damage.



And then Yesterday came and Twitter showed how much Hamiltonians care;






This past week the Hamilton city council voted to condemn the incident and promised to help police however they could to lay charges.


While it is still somewhat unclear what the group of 30 vandals intended with their actions the end result was waves of support and a community pulling together.
