Don River, Ontario - Benson Chan
My name is Benson and I'm helping Lake Ontario Waterkeeper do some water sampling on the Toronto Harbourfront.
One waterbody that I feel most connected to is the Don River Valley.
When I was 12, I remember just biking down the valley or down the trail. It was always a good time with my friends or just by myself. I was also on the Toronto Harbourfront trail for quite some time, like five six years ago. However, not so often now since I live in the east end.
I’m sampling with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper today because water has always been an important thing in my life. I studied environment science at Carleton University. It is nice to gain that experience. and to do sampling in the future, as a career. That's what I'd like to do.
I've always liked sampling, and being out with nature, enjoying the nice views, and breathing in the fresh air. It's great.
