  • The killing of Aune Newell - Spacing Toronto
    about an hour she told her roommate Toronto Public Library S 1 1826B Several people came heartbreakingly close to interrupting Aune s murder James Dibble a foreman at the Island incinerator near where the body was discovered told the papers he had seen two people walking a seldom used trail the day Aune disappeared I saw a girl and a man walking through the field The sweet clover grows nearly six feet high in some places and it was difficult to see them at first he said There are a lot of pheasants there and I watch to prevent dogs disturbing them which is how I noticed the young couple Dibble said he stopped to watch some fisherman on the shore and when he looked again the pair had vanished Later he reported hearing a girl screaming loudly and investigated the sound in his canoe I pulled my canoe up on the bank not 50 feet from where the body was found today he said Finding nothing he retreated Another may have seen the murder in process Marion Maynes an Island resident saw a young woman sitting on the shore of Long Pond motionless She was just staring out into space Just sitting staring When Aune was eventually found she was lying on her side arms folded beneath her chest legs tucked up against her body possibly in an attempt to hide her from view A team of police officers led by Sergeant McCaffrey scoured the area for clues but didn t find much No sign of a struggle no hint of where the killing had taken place They did find a thread caught on a bush Toronto Public Library S 1 1445 Following a lunch at a diner on Adelaide St Bill suggested he and Aune walk in the pleasant Fall weather on Centre Island On the way to the ferry dock Aune s former boss saw the pair from her car and waved a mundane interaction that would later prove critical After returning to the city Bill told police he went to a swimming pool on Manning Ave An attendant there remembered someone entering with an expired pass though he couldn t be sure if the name on the card was Newman or Newell Bill s behaviour under police questioning was suspicious He was overly anxious that police discover a letter he had written to Aune two days after she had disappeared in which he asked for custody of their son More telling however were several angry notes Bill had written to his new partner Elna Lehto in which he ranted about Aune s ability to collect the allowance his work provided Try to control your temper banish those ugly thoughts from your mind Lehto wrote in response to a letter police tantalizingly could not find Convinced they had a case police charged Bill Newell with Aune s murder Toronto Public Library S 1 2045A At trial the Crown presented mud and seeds removed from a pair of

  • 5 subtle signs of lost rivers in Toronto - Spacing Toronto
    two separate rivers that converged just northeast of Dundas and Ossington the creek flowed in a steep sided ravine through Trinity Bellwoods Park past the north end of Fort York and out into the Toronto Harbour South of Queen Garrison Creek swung east a move mirrored by the sweeping curve of Niagara St and Walnut Ave Before the little river was channeled underground in the 1880s the properties on the west side of Walnut backed onto the creek Stanley Park was formed out of the old ravine lands around 1900 Ossington Ave Garrison Creek and another tributary Dennison Creek converged near present day Ossington Denison and Dundas 1872 Wadsworth Unwin Map of the City of Toronto Library and Archives Canada NMC25641 A walk north on Ossington from Dundas starts out flat but the road soon dips into a shallow sided ravine carved out by Dennison Creek a tributary of Garrison Creek After crossing Ossington Dennison flowed southeast a short distance before merging with Garrison near the southwest corner of present day Harrison St and Roxton Rd named Givens St in the map above Before Garrison Creek and its tributaries were re routed into sewer pipes and the area heavily landscaped by development it posed a significant obstacle to road travellers Bridges of varying sizes were necessary on Ossington Harbord Dundas Adelaide and Richmond The Harbord Street bridge was subsequently buried but its northern parapet is still visible above ground Crawford St Before streets were added and the land subdivided Garrison Creek flowed through an undeveloped area northwest of the city 1872 Wadsworth Unwin Map of the City of Toronto Library and Archives Canada NMC25641 North of College Crawford breaks free from the rigidity of the surrounding street grid and briefly snakes west then east This deviation is another clue to the former path of Garrison Creek It was here that Dewson Stream a small tributary connected with the main flow The depression in the land made by the merging of the rivers is easy to notice at the intersection of Beatrice and Montrose streets Crawford passes over Garrison Creek a second time in Trinity Bellwoods Park In 1915 the city built a substantial concrete bridge over the river The structure is still standing but it has been buried up to the road deck by infill Orchard Park Small s Pond and the Serpentine at Queen and Kingston Rd Both turned to stagnant pools and were eventually filled in 1910 Goad s Atlas of the City of Toronto Toronto Public Library M912 7135 G57 BR fo Small s Pond and the Serpentine were significant manmade bodies of water at Queen and Kingston Rd created by the actions of Charles Coxwell Small an early landowner who dammed a creek near Queen and Eastern The reduction in flow created a roughly u shaped body of water The eastern arm was named the Serpentine and the western arm Small s Pond The 12 metre deep body of water was a popular skating and fishing

  • LORINC: Spend Brampton LRT money on Queen's Quay East - Spacing Toronto
    much democracy in situations like these I understand that the provincial Liberals have no appetite for the sort of regional governance reforms proposed a generation ago by Anne Golden But why can t cabinet approve regulations that lay out a less open ended approvals protocol for large regional projects Surely the government could pass legislation or an order in council that clearly articulates the required vetting stages and also establishes a specific end point an explicit take it or leave it moment that signals all the little pooh bahs in local councils that they can t filibuster indefinitely Municipal councils with concerns can engage at the level of land use planning choices along duly scrutinized corridors subject to the constraints already imposed on them in the Planning Act the provincial planning statement and the Places to Grow legislation But if the province s money is in play shouldn t the province have the final say on the high level decisions e g route recommendations from its delivery agent Metrolinx Seems like a no brainer to me None of these changes would require the creation of costly new bureaucracies or mega councils Yes there will be howls of self righteous indignation from those self important protectors of local god knows what But to govern is to chose as the old saying goes and if we are to ever get to yes the province needs to establish a decision making framework with an end point that does not confer the final say on politicians with the most parochial concerns Alas we don t have that governance system as the debacle in Brampton attests So in the spirit of constructive reform I propose this reasonable alternative if a council says no twice it should lose the money period and end of sentence Spend those valuable resources where they re wanted and needed I say And in Greater Toronto circa 2015 that place is Queen s Quay East Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts LORINC How to invest with Crosstown s found money On Brampton s short sighted Hurontario Main LRT decision What the Spadina subway overrun means for Scarborough pt 1 The Scarborough Subway and Smart Track are about to collide Tweet More posts by John Lorinc 7 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Ray Scanlan 13 days ago once again I suspect Brampton Council has its own agenda which is to develop a new Four Corners at Main and Steeles This is where future development will take place in addition to the major development there over the past few years and now the location of the LRT terminal Council seems reluctant to discuss this as it also puts the last nail in the coffin of the historic four corners Why would anyone invest there now Jason Paris 13 days ago As per Lorinc But why can t

  • LORINC: Trudeau and Canada’s next urban agenda - Spacing Toronto
    pressure to make some bold symbolic gestures such repealing the Harper government s most loathsome pieces of legislation Bill C51 barbaric cultural practices racist citizenship laws election rules designed to limit participation or re instating the long form census Trudeau will also have to come up with a plan to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis and deliver on his promise to sharply increase the number of claimants admitted to Canada this year But the deficit spending promise seems poised as Lynch proposed to become the centerpiece of the Liberal government s economic recovery program and so it will become the focus of intensive policy and political attention We know former Toronto city councillor and re elected MP Adam Vaughan has spent much of the past year crisscrossing the country talking to municipal leaders about housing and transit and advising Trudeau The Liberals in turn made transit pledges during the election including one to mayor John Tory s Smart Track And there will of course be political favours to return not least to the residents of some of Canada s largest cities who collectively sent both the Conservatives and the NDP packing Those with longer memories will also remember that a previous generation of Liberals swept into office in the early 1990s armed with ambitious national housing and daycare strategies that ultimately withered on the vine victims of Paul Martin s bid to eliminate an out of control deficit Those with more recent memories will also recall that when the Conservatives found religion on infrastructure spending back in the aftermath of the 2009 recession they soon discovered that all those capital dollars could be effectively spent on pet projects in Conservative ridings The Conservatives did allocate tens of billions of dollars to infrastructure and even topped up the federal gas tax But in the end they always played politics with the selected projects advanced by their provincial counterparts and then took pains to make sure the pork was suitably distributed When he takes office Trudeau will not be encumbered by a crushing deficit He will also presumably have a succinct critique of the Conservative s mis use of their own infrastructure funds And he ll be able to negotiate with several friendly provincial regimes Looking ahead in fact the planets seem properly aligned for a Trudeau government to formulate for the first time in over a generation a rational policy driven urban infrastructure investment plan that will direct this new tranche of spending on demonstrated need like affordable housing and long range goals aimed at dealing with pressing big city concerns such as congestion Indeed if Trudeau wants to make a clean break from Harper s hyper partisanship he ll begin by listening to his experts and then creating transparent outcome oriented processes for allocating the funding to places where those dollars will create the most significant economic updraft Canadians can all thank Kevin Lynch for offering up his game changing policy advice in the dying days of the summer
