This documentary was recently filmed and aired on Canadian television. The host in the film is a person I know and met in person. He helped to launch my career as a visual artist back in 1985. I had submitted a very detailed graphite drawing for a juried collection that would represent 30 artists from Northern Ontario to watch out for in the future. Christopher Hume was not only a critic on architecture and urban design but he was also an art critic. He along with 2 other notable Canadian artists traveled to Thunder Bay and spent 3 days viewing hundreds of submitted art works.
My submitted work earned me a third place honourable mention and I received an award. It along with the other selected artworks went on tour and received exhibition in several noted galleries across Canada. The documentary looks at urban issues with regards to moving large city streets in Toronto away from automobiles and towards other forms of public transportation including the bicycle, streetcar and subway and light rail.
