Mariko Uda is a PHD student in civil engineering at the University of Toronto, who loves her city. She is part of many projects around the city but today she joins us to talk about Green Neighbors 21, a mapping project she was involved with in Ward 21 (political boundary) in Toronto. Find the map and more about the group here. http://www.gn21.ca/
(This is the show from today, there were 2 uploaded today due to power issues in Toronto)
The map is deceptively simply, just a few dozen points on a fairly straight forward map. The implications for our communities, and our democracy is far greater however. We talk about a number interesting things you can learn about your community regardless if you live in Ward 21. We also discuss the need for our communities to be communities and not just groups of houses.
The first thing I did this morning before getting to the station today however, was accidentally listen to almost 20 min of AM 640 talk about Rob Ford…..
So the first 10 min of the show or so is a rant, just to warn you.
We’ll be back up to full power by next week folks! Thanks for the patience through our (technology) troubled epic Toronto ice-stormed holidays.
As announced on the show!
