FOSS MEMBER WINS ETOBICOKE GUARDIAN "URBAN HERO" AWARD
Last night, the Etobicoke Guardian awarded the "Urban Hero" award for the Environment to Terry Smith, a founding member of Friends of Sam SmithPark.
In a quote from the Guardian article, Terry affirms a conviction of his and, in a way, restates one of the core guiding principles for FOSS ...........
"The more high tech and built-up our city
becomes, the more we need the restorative power of nature for our
physical and mental well-being," said Smith, who works with Friends of
Sam Smith Park, the Lakeshore Planning Council and Good Air, Safe Power
(GASP). "Our communities and parks need lots of quiet natural spaces
where we can see wildlife, where we can escape from the pressure, the
rush and the concrete."
