Toronto’s history by bike

Toronto’s history by bike

My new commute to Dundurn takes me past the Stanley Barracks in the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. According to Mike Filey’s column last Sunday the tug boat parked next to the barracks is being moved to a new location.

It makes me nostaglic for my childhood when my father and I would go to the Marine Musuem every year, likely contributing to my love of boat books.

We also used to visit Mackenzie House annually — the house of Toronto’s first mayor William Lyon Mackenzie, who was also an early Canadian publisher. It’s so close to our office, we really should take a field trip over lunch one day!
