Background

Friends of Glen Davis Ravine is a community organization formed by local residents in response to a condominium proposal at 580-592 Kingston Road which threatens to irremediably damage this small, City-designated ravine (which happens to be an undisturbed part of the shoreline of ancient Lake Iroquois) and have major negative consequences for the entire Glen Davis neighbourhood. The development could also have a negative impact on a far greater area, and set a dangerous precedent for encroachment into other small ravines and green spaces throughout Toronto under the guise of urban "intensification".
