This weekend, urban enthusiasts around the world will be leading free walking tours of their neighbourhoods as part of Jane’s Walk. Started in Toronto, this annual festival was created to help people explore their cities through the eyes of local residents. The global event was inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs, who championed community-based city building.
