Toronto road closures are coming to town right alongside the Santa Claus Parade.
Whether you’ve been naughty or nice isn’t going to mean much to your commute since the downtown core will be locked up pretty tight regardless.
On top of the parade route closures, expect lane closures on the Queensway, around Adelaide, and Yonge and Dundas to be big concerns during your drive this weekend.
With more snow expected, isn’t easier to just stay home with hot chocolate?
