David Pecaut to me

The Internet is a forum for complaints, let’s face it.  The drive to connect with one another is long gone and the perils of a smaller global village are even more evident.  Twitter is the shortcut between the impulsive, critical mind and the blogosphere.

The TTC has been a popular choice for those of us who complain daily of our fair city.  Only a very few of us ever do anything to get things right.  David Pecaut was one of those few who inspire creativity, assertiveness and implementation regarding urban development.  Co-founder of the Illuminato arts festival and chairperson of Toronto City Summit Alliance, he collaborated with enthusiasts to get things done without the complication and bureaucracy attached to our municipal government.   Here is a well-written article on the man annointed the ‘shadow mayor’.  He will be missed.
