The Fall 2007 issue of Spacing takes a look at the challenges of turning Toronto into an eco-friendly metropolis. The lead article is a roundtable interview between Spacing, Mayor David Miller, and Dr. David Suzuki. The discussion focuses on how Toronto can be a leader in the fight against climate change. The cover section of the tenth issue of Spacing includes articles on community gardens and urban agriculture, eating wild plants found in our parks and laneways, the need to green our driveways, the not so long arm of environmental bylaws, comparing Toronto’s green initiatives to other Canadian cities, and the perils of living near a brownfield under redevelopment. This issue also marks the first time Spacing was named Small Magazine of the Year by the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors.
Our contributors also delve into topics such as the methodology of dumpster divers, the SUV limo industry, congestion charges on the Gardiner and DVP, John Lorinc’s City Hall column, the graffiti of engineers, and the history of the QEW’s lion monument.
