The Toronto Raptors have made Canadians across the country cheer, cry, scream and shout over the past few weeks, as the road to their historic NBA Finals win was anything but certain. However, Raptors fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief after a 114-110 win last night closed Game 6, and saw the Toronto team crowned NBA champions for the first time in history. In light of the Raptors victory parade, Mayor John Tory is telling Toronto employers to give staff time off for the special day.

Fans across the country will now prepare for a manic weekend of celebrations, which will culminate on Monday morning as the Raptors championship victory parade will take to Nathan Phillips Square for one final party.

The parade will begin at 10 a.m. near the Raptors' OVO Athletic Centre and proceed east on Lake Shore Boulevard into the downtown core - ultimately ending outside Toronto's iconic City Hall, according to CP24's Stephanie Smyth.

Although there is a fairly strong chance of rainfall on Monday, this isn’t dampening any spirits leading up to the parade. Large crowds are expected to be present for the victory lap, and the fan rally is also likely to draw significant crowds before and after the parade. In an effort to keep crowds under control, an alternative viewing party will be held a couple of kilometres away at a lakefront park.

While this is an extremely exciting event for Raptors fans and Torontonians, the daytime hours of the parade on a Monday means that some fans will be unable to attend due to work commitments. For citizens of Toronto that are scheduled to work, Mayor John Tory has got your back!

At a news conference, the Mayor of Toronto urged employers in the city to give their staff some time off work on Monday to attend the victory celebrations.

According to CTV News, he said, “I have a message that I would convey to people.
