Big Red Canoe
This is the enormous Douglas Coupland canoe from Canoe Landing Park (hence the name). A large hill was created with earth from the surrounding construction and the canoe has been placed at the top of it looking down onto the Gardiner expressway and Lake Ontario. The canoe is visible from all over the surrounding area. The white bench visible beside it is one of a few that were built to represent icebergs and which glow at night. Apparently the hillside has had a network of LED lighting installed that form waves of white light after dark. A field trip to the park after dark is going to be a priority - have to see all these special effects!
