P.C. Doug McCaw on police mount Winston this afternoon in Christie PIts.

A not so pretty slice of Toronto's history.

The riot at Christie pits shows a darker side of Toronto history, a side which is often left forgotten. Thousands of dollars have been put towards signs, art, and plaques that stop us from forgetting Garrison Creek, a creek that was buried underground, and now flows underneath Christie Pits. There is not even a single plaque that brings to light that the Christie Pits riot took place.
