Acknowledging YUL contribution to "Reshaping Toronto's Waterfront"

Michael Moir has written two chapters for a book that will be launched next Monday at an event at Fort York. the book is called “Reshaping Toronto’s Waterfront”. The book was edited byGene Desfor (Faculty) and Jennefer Laidley (graduate) from the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University.

“Reshaping Toronto’s Waterfront analyses how and why ‘problem spaces’ on the waterfront have become ‘opportunity spaces’ during the past hundred and fifty years. Contributors with diverse areas of expertise illuminate processes of development and provide fresh analyses of the intermingling of nature and society as they appear in both physical forms and institutional arrangements, which define and produce change. Reshaping Toronto’s Waterfront is a fundamental resource for understanding the waterfront as a dynamic space that is neither fully tamed nor wholly uncontrolled.”
