The Inter-Library Loans and the Toronto Public Library
I am still delirious with Inter-Library Loans via the Toronto Public Library. This book Ė a Martin Gardiner classic from the early sixties Ė came to me courtesy of Lakehead University, which is, I suppose, up in Thunder bay near the head of The Great Lakes.
Hooray! For Inter-Library Loans and the Toronto Public Library.
The Trees of Toronto - Grenville Street
I feel that I cannot stress enough the duplicity of Toronto City Council.
Work plods on in a desultory manner at securing the death of the new trees.
The photo above shows a concrete plinth with a flower bed structure. You THINK that the soil area available to the tree is pretty big, huh?
Donít forget that under that layer of earth is Ė concrete!
Here you can see that the earth has been spread out across the concrete barrier. Had the workers been a tad more conscientious, the earth would have been set right up to the flower-bed walls, and we wouldnít be aware that concrete was bare.
Make no mistake. This tree, and the others like it, are effectively encased in a very narrow cylinder of concrete and I predict that they will all be dead before I die.
