On November 15, I posted about efforts to save a 250 year old tree in North York. There is an update in this morning’s Toronto Star, written by Francine Kopun (article is paywalled). There is good news for those who have supported this effort either financially or in spirit.
At this time, the campaign is $40,000 short. According to the article, $313,000 had been raised (with $80,000 still needed), when a contributor pledged to donate half the shortfall. With the December 12 deadline approaching, City council has voted to move forward with the proposed purchase and at the same time continue with the money-raising campaign.
