| || ||
Economic Development, Culture and Tourism -- The public is invited to join
David Crombie for a series of FREE afternoon walks: A Wealth of Activity on the
Central Waterfront- Sunday, October 22, Victorian Gems on the Western
Waterfront - Sunday,October 29 and the Treasure of the Eastern Waterfront -
Sunday, November 5. The walks will start at 1 p.m. and last for about 2 hours.
Each walk will be a catalyst for a discussion, serving as an informal focus
group to develop ideas and initiatives for the "Waterfront Show" in 2002.
"We welcome the ideas, energy and involvement of the community in this project
dedicated to the natural, social and cultural history of the 40 kilometres of
Toronto's shoreline," says Rita Davies, "We hope to tap into the many stories
of our ongoing relationships with diverse communities and the waterfront".
A cruise on the Trillium on October 1, 2000 signalled the launch of a
brainstorming and public consultation on the format and contents of the
"Waterfront Show", which will be launched in the spring of 2002. The show will
capture the role the waterfront plays in Toronto's history, development and its
future. More than 500 Torontonians boarded the Trillium and embraced the City
of Toronto and the Waterfront Regeneration Trust's joint effort to put together
a "Waterfront Show."
"The interest shown on the cruise, tells us that Torontonians have a strong
interest in their heritage and want to participate in the regeneration of their
waterfront," said David Crombie.

Show or for details about the walks can contact the Waterfront Regeneration
