ABOVE: Gord Perks responds to Giorgio Mammoliti’s “pedophile district” comments

TORONTO – Torontonians took to Twitter Monday afternoon to share their love of Parkdale after Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti characterized the neighbourhood as Toronto’s “pedophile district.”

Mammoliti’s press release criticized holding electronic dance music events at Exhibition Place a few blocks south of Parkdale.

“With ‘all‐ages’ parties being held next to a pedophile district, we are simply encouraging the continued abuse of our children,” he said in a press release issued Monday.

That press release motivated friends of Parkdale and foes of Mammoliti to share their #ParkdaleLove on Twitter.
