Toronto has been over the traditional mall Santa for some time now. Sure they're still out there, but every one really wants to sit on Fashion Santa's lap. That's why many were shocked to learn Yorkdale Shopping Centre replaced him with someone new this year.
Model Adam Martin will be replacing Paul Mason for the 2016 holiday season and Torontonians are not taking this news lightly. Word is still out on what exactly happened, but it seems like a foolish idea seeing as the city had really fallen for Mason.
A statement on the mall's website says Martin will bring a "whole new edge" to the season, but Twitter does not care. Here's a snap of what the city is saying about the change.
