|Janes Walk 2010|
Ossington station is also a meeting place of many once of year who come to gather for “Janes Walk – The Wizard of Ossington” . There are over 40 “Janes Walks” across Toronto – all meeting up at various subway stations throughout the year. The walks were originally the brainchild of the late Jane Jacobs, who believed that we were losing 5 important pillars in our lives. To quote her, these are the lists that culturally if we lose them, she believed we may as well be entering the Dark Ages again.
1. Community and Family
2. Higher Education
3. The Effective Practice of Science
4. Taxation and Government
5. Self-policing by Learned Professions “
The walks are designed to bring us together as a community, to learn about our culture, our neighbourhoods and to stop, and look around at a slower pace.
