Apparently they have nothing to lose... but their minds...
An anonymous poster campaign is waging a war against young urban professionals in an east-end neighbourhood.Can't say I didn't see this coming.
The black posters proclaim: "No yuppies in Leslieville." They have appeared on Green P pay boxes, hydro poles and on the temporary walkway beside the EAST Lofts development on Queen St. E., near the Don Valley Parkway.
The poster suggests people can help "save the neighbourhood" by not shopping at high-end stores in the area and organizing tenant unions to fight rent increases.
The last two suggestions on the poster take on an unlawful ring: "Smash their windows" and "write graffiti." Commonly posted in shop windows, they are the creation of the Toronto East Community Coalition.
