Toronto Mayor John Tory issued an official announcement that June 17, 2019 would be the official “We The North Day” after the Raptors defeated the Warriors 4-2 in total.
John Tory wrote: “Toronto Raptors have captured the hearts of Toronto residents, and fans cheered as they won the 2019 NBA championship. This milestone victory brought the Raptors the first league title in team history, and this is the first time that the O’Brien Cup has crossed the northern border to Canada.
“For this epic season, winning the NBA championship is the perfect ending. It was through the dedication and hard work of all the players, coaches, trainers and the management of the Raptors that they achieved this result, “John Torry said afterwards.
“This victory belongs to the enthusiastic Toronto Raptors fans as well,” Tory said after setting the mood. “They are the best fans in the league, not only making Jurassic Park (the square in front of the special Raptors’main stadium) seated, but also throughout the country. Years of patience, support, dedication and trust have finally been poured into it. Toronto proves to the world that it is a basketball city, and this sport has flourished in the north.
Today, as we celebrate the first championship in the history of the Raptors on Our North Day, I hope everyone in this city can give a hand and show your support, pride, love and gratitude to this extraordinary team.”
Now, as mayor of Toronto, John Tory, on behalf of the Toronto City Council, hereby declares that June 17, 2019 will be the “King of the North” of Toronto.
In fact, the slogan of “King of the North” began in 2015. In order to boost the team’s morale and expand the fan market, Toronto Raptors’owner, Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment Group, commissioned Sid Lee, a well-known creative service company whose customers include Red Bull, Absolute Vodka and Circus Soleil, to plan a slogan for them.
Ultimately, Vito Piaza, the company’s president and co-founder, and his team chose the phrase “King of the North” which was later read by numerous Raptors fans after careful research and discussion.
