FEB 6, 2014 Sous Sol
It’s not that any Canadian Politician needed more attention. Sir Allan has had attention enough by having so many high schools and boulevards named in his memory. But when those names become household names – the very fabric of the you inhabit – what else can you do? This glorious oak made my days on Wendover Drive slightly more vertical. And it serves its function for me as a kind of archetype of the hierarchical. The tree is one of those ubiquitous branching forms that (assuming you live on planet earth) you really can’t escape, in spite of what’s going on by way of paper pulp and lumber via the Amazon rainforest.
