Final week for skating in Pearen Park

It’s the final week of skating in Pearen Park, the excellent, free, community-organized skating rink in Mount Dennis.

I’ve been taking an online class on documentary making, and I’ve been working on a show about the people behind the magic at the rink.

Keep in mind that it’s for an international audienceā€š so I’ve conflated Etobicoke, Mount Dennis, and Weston. Though the distinctions matter, I hope you’ll overlook them to see how much I admire the local heroes Josie and Simon.
