If you don’t live in Toronto you’re probably unfamiliar that an overpass highway separates the downtown core from the waterfront. City council has debated for years what to do about this problem, raising the possibility of dismantling the overpass altogether and constructing an underground passageway instead. Of course, Toronto city councillors are possibly the worst in the world, and a decision has never been made, let alone a plan put into action. These people don’t make decisions, they just bicker.
However, what they have proposed — possibly as an interim solution — is to build parks under the concrete eye soar known as the Gardiner Expressway. Today was the unveiling of the first completed park in the project. Mayor Rob Ford — a.ka. the worst mayor in Toronto history — was on hand, and sweating like a pig in heat. I’m not bitter! I don’t like Rob Ford, I think he’s racist, misogynist and homophobic, and this opinion I have of him has been informed by his ignorant musings over the years, and subsequent half-hearted apologies.
But I digress. I was able to snap some photographs of the event this morning. What do you think?
