I’m off to Algonquin Park for the weekend. It’ll be the first time I’ve camped in the Northern section of the park. I’ll post more pictures when I return.
TORONTO – The flag of the Toronto Maple Leafs likely flew higher than any other in Toronto on Saturday.
Rob MacFarlane is a crane operator in Toronto who, inspired by Chris Hadfield, frequently tweets photos from high above the city.
Chris Drew, a Twitter follower of MacDonald’s, told Global News that he bought the flag from Real Sports and this morning, with the help of MacFarlane’s daughter and son-in-law, attached the flag to his crane.
Today at City Council, Planning staff gave a fantastic overview of the new amalgamated zoning-by law. Here’s a copy of the presentation (I’ve asked staff to send me the Prezi link).

Today I had the pleasure of visiting the new Ryerson Mattamy Athletics Centre. What an amazing building! They have restored Maple Leaf Gardens and Ryerson University went from last place for athletic space to first among Ontario universities. I donated to Ryerson and got one of the arena seats engraved with a plaque with the names of my father, mother and brother.
Today I had my first opportunity to visit a clean room lab at the MaRS Discovery District on College Street. It was an amazing experience and very different from my urban planning background. It was an opportunity to learn more about options available for a product in development that I’m involved with. More details soon! (Photo credit: Dan Voicu)
