Walking the Dog and Other Adventures

Went to the Markham Fair today- I highly recommend it! Such a great little fair.

Although my Aunt and late Uncle are founding members of Markham-Stouffville Hospital, and my late Uncle was I believe the first doctor in Unionville, I myself knew little about the area. I’m from Toronto. To me, this is ‘boonieville’!

Sadly, the area is exploding in population, and farmland (here and northward) is turning into suburbia at an alarming rate. Personally, I think it’s important to have a strong base of native-born or long-term resident Canadians to help handle the onslaught of mass migration. Otherwise, the original character, values, conservationism, and traditions of Canada get lost. That’s just my 2 cents.

Integrity and decency, first and foremost. The stories I could tell you about that!

EDIT 1:  My mother moved here in 2002 I think (long story) and I moved in, in 2013, for obvious personal health reasons.

EDIT 2:  Not to say that people are not environmentally conservative in their own countries (though more often farmers and rural folks), yet those practices get quickly wiped out by corporations, as well as foreign investment.

Also people here think there is an abundance of *everything* – electricity, water, food, products, etc – and they see no reason to conserve or reduce. Litter, too, explodes – especially in pristine natural locales.
