Grey city walk

March 21, 2011

Walked from Klein Auto downtown and back. Stop at market, library, City Lights, here and there on a grey day. Aching city. Bare broken trees. Empty storefronts, vast lots waiting to grow up. Kids in vastly oversized clothes, hoods, looking like stick ghosts holding up sheets. Black guy with cap pulled over his face eyes deep in shadow on a day without sun and walking cocky, chin swinging left and right, with his head tilted back so he can see. Tattoo designer, black wool cap over his eyebrows and dark sunglasses sits in his shop window. Huge piles of gritty, sand covered snow waiting to melt. Waiting for colour.

People, not deer threaten bog – report


For most of the past century, it’s been people, not deer, who’ve posed a threat to the bog environmentalists say is an ecological treasure and rarity in southern Ontario.

People drained the bog, flooded it, stripped its peat, cut its black spruce for Christmas trees, surrounded it with development and gravel pits and planted an invasive plant that’s likely its biggest threat, buckthorn.

Smart coyote at Western to hunt rabbits, squirrels or garbage

Monday night London endorsed a funding plan for a recycling centre approved last year before stimulus money fell through. Meantime, a coyote has been spotted along the river trails at the grounds of the University of Western Ontario.
