Governor Simcoe Walking Tour, September 25, 2021: Now that we are back in “Stage 3”, we are confident that it will be safe to proceed with our annual Governor Simcoe historic walking tour on Saturday, September 25, 2021, if there is sufficient interest. This FREE guided tour retraces a portion of Simcoe’s 1793 expedition up the Toronto Carrying Place portage route. As in past years, Part 1 of the tour will start at 9:30 am at the Rousseau plaque (8 South Kingsway, beside the Petro Canada station), heading north along Riverside Drive to Bloor Street. After a break for lunch on Bloor Street, Part 2 will start at 1:00 pm at the Alex Ling Fountain (north-west corner of Bloor and Jane), heading north towards the Eglinton Flats, and mostly using side streets between Jane and the Humber. Everyone is welcome. You can choose to participate in Part 1, or Part 2, or both, and you are free to join or leave the group at any point.
This is an outdoor event, but we will be asking participants to be fully vaccinated, bring masks, and observe physical distancing for added protection. We are also requesting advanced registration using Eventbrite. If you think you might want to participate, please let us know that you are thinking of joining us for Part 1, or Part 2, or both Parts, as this will facilitate contact tracing if necessary, and it will allow us to assess the level of interest.
