Annotation

A collection of forty-three mostly short essays; the third volume presenting a future Toronto plus a “DirecTOry” of sources for environmentally friendly sources and activities (261-316). The “TOmorrow” section (203-59) is less explicitly utopian than that in the first volume but includes one graphic-novel eutopia, “Memoirs from the Distant Future” by Marc Ngui (204-12) depicting a sustainable future Toronto.
