Rouge Park Stream Disaster

The Morningside Tributary is the last tableland trout stream in Toronto, it is part of the Rouge Park and it provides habitat for nationally rare red-side dace. Between 2001 and 2003, a 1400 metre reach of the Morningside Tributary was destroyed to allow developers to fill and build homes within the flood plain area.
