A few weeks ago, I walked the path along the shore of Lake Ontario at Ontario Place. I usually whizz along here on my bike so it was nice to walk and enjoy the natural spaces and observe the biodiversity that provides a habitat to many endangered species. 

I, like many others, am in disbelief over the tone-deaf plans to build a private spa over these public lands. The TeachBeach is such a special spot for Toronto, my favorite spot in Toronto, and the new beach planned to be located near the break wall and sewage outlet just doesn't cut it. Why destroy natural and sustainable ecosystems on such prime real estate?
