What would Toronto look like if a disaster hit our city? What would an earthquake do to our buildings? Are tornadoes a part of our future? What about an extended fuel shortage or a drought in the farmlands of Ontario? And what would happen if the CN Tower fell over? The Americans wouldn’t invade us for our water — would they?
In Spacing’s most cynical and apocalyptic issue ever, our contributors examine all the big, bad scary things that could rock the foundation of Toronto. And what better place to have it than along the edges of the Don River at the Evergreen Brick Works, one of the many places hit hard by floods during Hurricane Hazel in 1954.
Come out to our release party on Tuesday May 29th at the Evergreen Brick Works. We will have prizes to be won in our raffle (Patagonia stuff, movie passes, bike accessories, etc), a handful of disaster themed activities, and a few new merchandise items for sale.
Magazines will arrive in subscribers’ mailboxes during the last week of May and into the first week of June. You’ll be able to pick up a copy on newsstands starting June 5th.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Please watch our blog on Tuesday for a special treat to coincide with the release of the new issue.
