Toronto Votes To Buy Land Around Remains Of Old Indian Village

From The Star:

Toronto councillors have voted to drain the city's entire land acquisition fund to buy a 7-hectare tract of parkland in northeast Scarborough from a developer for $17 million.

I wrote about this site here and I am glad to say that the councillors have done the right thing. Artifacts in the area date back about 700 years, and it serves as a an important piece in the wildlife corridor running in and out of the Rouge River Valley. Better that these features should be preserved than another developer be allowed to slap up yet another sub-division.
