Chapman Valley - last tree frogs in Toronto

Or maybe not.  I'm sure someone could drag out a tree frog somewhere.  For a while, we had this tree frog at the cottage.  You were always finding it underfoot somewhere.  Then we would carefully place him in a tree, and the next day he'd be back again.  Was extremely loud when he went full blast.  In this valley you hear them all around, but you can never get close.  Sort of like the end of the rainbow.  


My current cause for the week is this valley, which will be destroyed soon, or maybe not.

Amazon Slash and Burn in Toronto Part 2

This is a citizen news report.  As Google will soon suck all news outlets dry, this is the only thing you will get from now on.  This is protected by 'fair use' and 'freedom of the press'.  Should powerful people push libel chill and all that crap, then we can truly say we don't have a free press any more.  Actually, we never did, those guys had to be paid!  I am not getting paid for this, and I am not advancing a social cause.  This is merely a factual report, with a bit of poetic license, to make it interesting.  :)  I'm using my best 'sad BBC' voice and extrapolating.



If you are a sensitive soul, then believe all the talking heads that everything will be okay.  It will extend your life.

Amazon Slash and Burn in Toronto Part 1

This is citizen news.  Soon, that will be all you can get.  If this issue got popular, then the PR talking heads would deny everything.  Right now they get respectability by being framed in desperate news, or news outlets desperate for money.  Maybe, when they are all by themselves, people might see the truth -- that there has never been a talking head telling the truth, ever.

For 25 years, I have never done much to reveal the Chapman Valley.  It has become a nature paradise by neglect.  Now that is over.  Like the Amazon, a road has been hacked through it, and attention given by greedy property owners who can realize instant millions.  This is a story of Toronto slash and burn.


I still have to work on my video.  I'll do that when the rain starts.  I'm dividing the series up so to make it less popular.  :)
