My couchhost Rafael wanted to show me the famous Canadian wilderness.
Due to dubious political decisions, this wilderness exists just 1 hour
away from Toronto. In the seventies the government decided that
Toronto should have a second airport. Therefore, it bought land, lots
of land. Due to demonstrations of the local population this project
was never realized. Now 5-10 people live on this area, renting the
places. The rest is completely deserted. The streets as my host
pointed out look like the ones from the communist era and the silence
is breathtaking.
