A 9-day performance crossing Toronto by canoe
May 22 - June 3, 2008
This project will be realized on weekdays between May 22 and June 3, 2008. The trip will start at Finch and Highway 427 and crisscross Toronto using Lake Ontario and the major streams, rivers, and ponds in the city (Etobicoke Creek, Mimico Creek, Black Creek, Humber River, Grenadier Pond, Cat Fish Pond, Don River, Highland Creek and Rouge River).
At times, in order to cross from one body of water to another, the canoe will be portaged along city streets/parks. The trip will conclude in the Rouge Valley in the north eastern part of Toronto.
The route will be paddled by 10 GTA residents: Michael Brown, Scott Brown (Brampton), Stephen Brown, Nick Gamble, Soren Mikson, Steve Pollitt, Ben Scholes, Bob Sexton, Ana Silva and Erin Zimerman.
