A Toronto comedian has stolen the social media spotlight after demanding a movie theatre be built at Dufferin Mall.
The mall is undergoing new development, and concerned comedian/west-end citizen Mikey Kolberg's video to lobby his cause has received thousands of likes and a swell of Toronto support.
“I'm just very passionate about this. I believe this in my bones,” Kolberg told Narcity via video call.
"I posted a video about it on Twitter yesterday and everyone seems to agree with me. So I think they should do it. I think they’ve got to get to it right now.”
Responding to getting name-dropped in the video, Mayor John Tory posted his own video explaining that his powers as mayor don't allow for him to single-handedly get the movie theatre built, but he would be prepared to consider a free popcorn mandate.
