SPOTTED BY: Marie Poliak
WHERE: Massey Street at Queen Street West
WHEN: Tuesday, March 31 at noon
WHAT: A rare white squirrel across the street from Trinity Bellwoods park, a green space that has long been renowned for its small but mighty albino squirrel colony. These snowy squirrels are at a genetic disadvantage because their stark white coats make them stand out against the surrounding environment, which renders them easy targets for potential predators. Add to that their poor eyesight, and these little guys have the odds stacked against them. Yet despite hardwired hardships and the occasional fatal accident, their stubborn presence shows a resilience from which we can all learn a thing or two.
