Book Launch: The Oak Ridges Moraine Battles
Dec 2, 2013, 6pm-8pm
Join FES professors Anders Sandberg, Gerda Wekerle and Liette Gilbert at the launch of their new book The Oak Ridges Moraine Battles: Development, Sprawl, and Nature Conservation in the Toronto Region.
The Oak Ridges Moraine is a unique landform that generated heated battles over the future of nature conservation, sprawl and development in the Toronto region at the turn of the 21st century. This book provides a careful, multifaceted history and policy analysis of planning issues and citizen activism on the Moraine’s future in the face of rapid urban expansion. The Oak Ridges Moraine Battles captures the hidden aspects of a story that received a great deal of attention in the local and national news, and that ultimately led to provincial legislation aimed at protecting the Moraine and Ontario’s Greenbelt.
