The Meadoway: 16 km stretch of urban park will connect downtown to Scarborough | CBC News
Posted: Apr 11, 2018 | CBC News | by Ramna Shahzad.

The park will connect 4 ravines, 15 parks and 34 neighbourhoods.

A 16-kilometre long stretch of land slated to be transformed into a large urban park called The Meadoway is "a bold vision," Mayor John Tory said on Wednesday.

The park, which will stretch north from the Don River Ravine in downtown Toronto all the way to Rouge National Urban Park in Scarborough, will allow pedestrians and cyclists to travel the entire length without ever leaving the park. .......The city is working with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and the W. Garfield Weston Foundation to transform a barren power corridor into the green space over the next seven years.

The entire project is expected to cost around $85 million. The W. Garfield Weston Foundation has pledged a total of $25 million to support it over the coming months.

"[The park] serves as another example of what can be accomplished when we work together with public, private and philanthropic partners,"

Put Down the Kombucha and Pick Up a Crossbow: Hipsters Are the New Hunters - WSJ
By Cameron McWhirter and Zusha Elinson
Jan. 9, 2019 11:55 a.m. ET

An older generation of hunters is trying to lure recruits to the sport by pitching it as a good way to ensure meat is local, sustainable and probably organic.

“Earthy crunchy aligns very well with deer hunting,” says Charles Evans, 29, who works in hunter recruitment for the Georgia Wildlife Federation......The trainees use crossbows, which are quieter than guns and let them train and hunt on properties closer to civilization. For some first-time hunters, the equipment is more palatable than firearms......Once a staple of American life, hunting has declined as the percentage of people living in rural areas shrinks and fewer people have the time or need for a pastime requiring patience and the willingness to kill an animal. There aren’t enough interested people to replace those over 45 who make up the bulk of active hunters, says Loren Chase, a former Arizona Game and Fish Department official who heads a statistical consulting firm specializing in natural resources.

Ideas for JCK

Do
* Hold onto your brand's core msg. "Having a strong identity from the
beginning helps shape the org. as it evolves."
* Use retail to create a deeper customer connection "There's nothing
like being able to tell your full story in 3 dimensions."
* Hire a specialist team of retail advisers when opening in new mkts
"We've been successful over the yrs. because when we do something new,
we find people who can teach us."
* Connect with the local community to create local advocates "It's all
about repeat business & people talking to people."

Don't
* See wholesale and retail as substitutes - they should be complementary
"If we take the eye off our wholesale business then our cash cow dries
up & we can no longer fund our retail expansion."
* Be afraid to be anti-fashion "We're about longevity, not [about being]
disposable."
* Forget that great brands grow through word of mouth "Our most
important question is: 'Would U recommend Icebreaker to others?'"
