2015 Oct 6: All-candidates debate

Hi Everyone.

Thank you for all the great support you have given for the off-grid pop-up office. It’s created a lot of buzz around the riding and we have some media that has confirmed (although anything could change last minute!).

On another note: I’m so sorry to be getting this message out last minute. I’ve been swamped with events and prepping for the office launch.

Applegrove is holding an all candidates event tonight. If you are available it would be great to have some supporters out there cheering on the Green Message.

Toronto-Danforth All-candidates Meeting
Tuesday, 2015 October 6, 7pm – 9pm
Applegrove gymnasium, 60 Woodfield Road

More details are in the poster below.

Thanks again, and if I don’t see you tonight I hope to see you at the office launch tomorrow at 1:30.

Best, Chris

2015 Oct 7: Campaign office pops up

Canada’s first off-grid, solar powered, urban shipping container-chic Campaign Pop-up Office

Chris Tolley, Green Party candidate for Toronto-Danforth, launches the first ever off-grid, solar powered campaign pop-up office. Join us:

Wednesday, 2015 October 7, 1:30pm
899 Queen St E
(south side of Queen, just east of Logan)

Chris Tolley pop-up office

This office, fashioned out of a shipping container, is located on Queen Street East in trendy Leslieville. Campaign staff plan and coordinate Tolley’s campaign from this location.

“My opponents are running multi-story, huge offices with lights blazing. We want to show that you can do things differently. By repurposing a shipping container and adding solar power, we are proving, that with a bit of imagination, you can think outside of the box while working inside of it,” says Tolley.

The launch will include a ‘turning on the switch’ moment where the solar panels come alive and power the space, as well as a short talk from the candidate, Chris Tolley.     Read more »
