Faulty Thinking | Our Daily Bread

Faulty Thinking | Our Daily Bread: Four people—a pilot, a professor, a pastor, and a hiker—were flying in a small plane when the engines died. The pilot said, “There are only three parachutes. Since this is my plane, I’m taking one of them.” He put it on and jumped out. The professor said, “I’m brilliant and the world needs me, so I’m taking a parachute,” and he jumped out.

Then the pastor told the hiker, “I don’t want to be selfish, so you take the last parachute.” The hiker replied, “There are still two left, so we can each have one. The professor jumped out with my backpack instead of the parachute!” Though the professor thought he would land safely, his assurance was based on faulty thinking.

People Pave the Way at Yonge & Eglinton — Jane's Walk

People Pave the Way at Yonge & Eglinton — Jane's Walk

Toronto Area Walks:

People Pave the Way at Yonge & Eglinton

Guided by Anne Johnston Health Station


Date
Saturday, May 5, 2012
Start Time
11:59 am
Est. Duration
2 hours
People Pave the Way at Yonge & Eglinton What does accessibility mean to you?  It’s more than just curb cuts and ramps.  The sidewalk width and grade, or shop entrance and aisle widths can make a huge difference. Is a bathroom really accessible if it fits a wheelchair yet has no automatic door opener?  Good lighting, easily defined steps, and smooth pavements all add to how easily and safely a person moves around their neighbourhood.


The Anne Johnston Health Station will lead an accessibility walk in the Yonge & Eglinton area.  Through sharing their personal stories, both long-time residents and newcomers to the community will introduce walkers to who Anne Johnston was and why the Health Station is named after her, as well as provide a history of the neighbourhood.  In addition, drawing on Jane Jacobs’ principles, they will outline how the neighbourhood has seen changes in accessibility over the years, and draw attention to the current state and future goals of accessibility and people friendliness in the community.
