Issue 9 /// The Water Issue

The focus for Spacing’s Summer 2007 issue is on water: Toronto’s ravines, rivers, water towers, sewers, and waterfront. We’ve captured a snapshot of Toronto’s relationship with water and how it shapes our everyday lives. Our contributors look at how wading pools are used, where shipwrecks are located along Toronto’s shoreline, the intervention art of fountaineering, and the which residents are looking out for the health of our waterfronts and watersheds. Toronto Star urban affairs writer Christopher Hume examines whether Toronto’s waterfront is doomed for mediocrity. This issue garnered Spacing a Silver medal for Best Editorial Package at the 2008 National Magazine Awards.
