At Yonge and Dundas Square: Collecting Street Propaganda so you don’t have to

So, I recently moved to Toronto. And often I pass by Yonge and Dundas Square, a main public square downtown. It’s always a lively and bustling place. You can count on seeing street performers and people handing out free stuff.

On day 2 here, I got bored of saying ‘no, thank you’ to everyone handing out tracts, pamphlets, etc. so I decided to accept anything anyone is handing out and share it with you in this blog.

You might say no to pamphleteers, but I know you’re curious about what they’re spreading around!

Free copies of the Qu’ran:


Handbooks about Islam:


Toronto Pig Save pamphlets:
“As long as there are slaughterhouses…there will be battlefields.” – Leo Tolstoy (quoted inside brochure)


A Toronto Vegetarian Directory:


And a promo piece for the Vegetarian Food Festival:

And reminding you to:


And what would a public square be without conspiracy theorists?



Time for a snack!

  1. Funny to read this today not long after reading Rod Dreher’s American Conservative piece about a free speech zone on the LSU campus. It seems that at least one young lady at the university felt that, if free speech in the form of such things as handing out pamphlets were not limited to the campus’s Free Speech Plaza, she would feel robbed of safety and generally oppressed everywhere. I admire your fortitude, being able to endure such perilous and oppressive terrors as pamphleteers and street performers.
