This blog is by an Estonian discovering her childhood dream country Canada. Based in Toronto, but sometimes traveling. Looking for an Estonian connection in the far away country and giving away tips about what to see, what to do, what to experience. Hence the name of the blog: Toronto. Canada. Estonia.

Sir James Pliny Whitney

A little history lesson.

The monument of Sir James Pliny Whitney I found at Queen's Park while exploring the city with a French Couchsurfer I shared the room in Etobicoke. Little I knew about him, but after I opened Wikipedia, I found out that he was a politician in the Canadian province of Ontario. He was also a lawyer in eastern Ontaro and the sixth Premier of Ontario.

Man, famous enough to have his own monument in a lovely park for pedestrians.
