Tanny Wells Appointment

Kathleen (Tanny) Wells, former chair of the Task Force to Bring Back the Don has been appointed to the management board of Downsview Park. Good to see one of our own make it to bigger things. One wonders whether this will lead to any progress being made in making Downsview Park anything more than the windswept wasteland it is now.

Tanny was the chair of the Task Force from 1994-1998. It's interesting to note that Downsview Park is in the Don River Watershed although no streams currently run through the park - they have long since been buried by urbanization. Lost Rivers documents this quite well. Maybe Tanny can look into restoring some of these lost creeks.
