Toronto Mayor Declares Bob Marley Day


Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto has proclaimed that February 6th, Bob Marley’s birthday, is the official Bob Marley day for his city.

“Whereas each year on February 6, we honour the legacy of Robert (Bob) Nesta Marley, an influential musician, advocate for human rights and international ambassador of peace.” – Ford


Hats off to the mayor! Though I bet citizens of Toronto would rather have a day off for Marley’s commemoration, the important fact to note is that people around the world are still celebrating Bob Marley for his passionate and peaceful notions. Whether it’s through music or service.
