[URBAN NOTE] Seven Toronto links: Lake Ontario, fly, Ontario Place, Port Lands, parks

  • Measured at Toronto, Lake Ontario has reached its highest point in recorded history. blogTO reports.
  • Beach season has to be put off in Toronto until mid-June at least, on account of the record high water. blogTO reports.
  • Legendary queer nightclub fly–or fly 2.0–is shutting down this Pride. blogTO reports.
  • The provincial government call for development proposals for Ontario Place, happily, makes no mention of casinos. The National Post reports.
  • This BBC article takes a convenient outsider’s look at the controversy over the Google involvement in the Port Lands development project.
  • Tanya Mok at blogTO introduces readers to the very unusual June Callwood Park, designed around a voiceprint of the late journalist and activist.
  • Samantha Edwards at NOW Toronto looks at the impromptu party being Daniel Rotsztain to celebrate The Pillars at Queens Quay at York this evening. (I think I’ll be there.)
