Green Savoree Racing Promotions say that they are monitoring the current situation regarding COVID 19 in Toronto after the city’s mayor John Tory announced that the Pride and the Jazz Festival have been cancelled.
Tory also confirmed that all public events up to June 30 have been cancelled. Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday he said:
This is not an easy decision to make, but it is necessary to protect the public and to save lives.
Tory went on to say:
We know this pandemic is changing how we go about our daily lives in our city. And that will also mean many of the events we treasure in our city every year will not be able to go ahead as scheduled this year.
“While we treasure many of these events and the important contribution they make in our life, protecting the health and safety of Toronto residents is our primary concern right now.”
“Festivals and events are treasured moments in neighbourhoods across the city. But the sooner we heed the advice of our medical experts … the sooner we get back to the things we enjoy and love.
