TORONTO – Toronto Coun. Josh Matlow wants to name a playground after iconic Canadian children’s entertainers Sharon, Lois and Bram.
Sharon Hampson, Lois Lilienstien and Bram Morrison formed their act in Toronto in 1978 and began touring. A television show followed in 1984 and The Elephant Show ran on the CBC until 1988, and was seen on reruns in Canada and the United States until the mid-90s.
Matlow wants the playground at June Rowlands Park, near Mount Pleasant Road and Davisville Avenue, to be named after the trio.
“I am currently preparing a formal request to City staff and looking forward to announcing an event including Sharon, Lois & Bram to celebrate the unveiling of the new name in the coming months,” he wrote on his website.
According to a report in the Toronto Star, the motion will be presented to the Toronto East York Community Council on Sept. 10.
