So I went to Centennial Creek again at Lawrence and Centennial Rd in East Scarborough. It’s the part that is north of Lawrence. The main spring ephemeral was Trout Lily – no Dutchman’s Breeches or Trillium around! I got confused about the Mystery Plant because I thought it was Broadleafed Toothwort with which to begin, but then I saw a photo of Cutleafed Toothwort and kinda forgot Broadleafed existed – while still remembering the actual leaves did not resembled Cutleaf. I then read that Broadleaf was a Spring Wildflower (Wikipedia), but then remember it was in leaf in July (so therefore it’s not ephemeral). It could simply be a Spring Flowering Only plant but not ephemeral – or it might be the non-native Goutwort. I’ll know when it flowers if it’s either Toothwort or Goutwort. GOSH!!

Support Home-Based businesses❗️ Stop presuming that everyone can afford to lease their own commercial office space❗️ Probably at least 1/4 of Toronto’s population lives below the $23K Yearly Income Poverty Line. Since there are so many more people in the City than jobs, it makes so much sense for everyone to be encouraged to start their own home based business‼️
Legitimatize Rooming Houses by removing the City By-Law against them and maybe licensing them (if the Licence is not harsh yet firm). Probably someone who makes minimum wage full time cannot even afford a simple Bachelor Apartment in the city themselves❗️ So they go on Kijiji or Craigslist and search for homeowners willing to rent out one of their bedrooms for monthly cash. What has happened in the past is the homeowner has gotten into some type of trouble and has had to sell the house. This is bad for everyone. If the homeowner had some type of protection under a kind of Rooming House Licensing Agreement, then everyone would benefit❗️
SUPPORT THE GREY SQUIRREL CULL IN THE BRITISH ISLES (and British Columbia/ Western USA). Just because they’re cute doesn’t mean they haven’t destroyed England’s Natural Environment already for the past 50 years or so.
When dealing with something as bad as an Invasive Species, you should use your Rationality with your Intent. Remember that the Eastern Grey Squirrel *IS* native to Toronto and the rest of the Southern Ontario, Quebec, maybe the Maritimes, and definitely the North-Eastern USA. Therefore, treat it with kindness in its native habitat!!
