On Saturday May 7th, I went on a Jane’s Walk through the Nordheimer Ravine in Toronto-St. Paul’s. Along with constituents and fellow Torontonians, I was thrilled to take part in one of the 200 Jane’s Walk tours which occurred in Toronto this past weekend (and Toronto is just one of 200 cities that participates in Jane’s Walk!). As we walked, our guide, the remarkable Susan Aaron, led a discussion on indigenous versus invasive plants and trees in the area. We learned about the history of the ravine, how it has urbanized over time, and what this process has meant for its ecosystems. I’ve been the MP for Toronto-St. Paul’s for almost two decades, and I am still learning new things about the neighbourhood!
It was great to meet so many people on the walk, and to hear just how important preserving, experiencing, and celebrating our green spaces is to them! Exploring these pockets of nature is a crucial part of this process, and that’s why Jane’s Walk is such a great event. I hope to see you on a walk next year!

Come out and join our neighbours, friends, and Sharon & Bram for a community concert and celebration!
