Past TOURS / The Crombie Cruise

The Crombie Cruise

Hosted by former Toronto Mayor David Crombie, who served as Mayor from 1972-1978 and a Federal MP from 1978-1988, along with historian, Toronto Sun journalist and author Mike Filey (Toronto: The Way We Were), The Crombie Cruise will set sail with a focus on the history of Toronto’s waterfront, as well as an imagination for what it could be. This unique boat tour will allow guests to take in many different sights and insights from both former Mayor Crombie and Mike Filey, whose connection to and knowledge of Toronto’s waterfront is as large and extensive as Lake Ontario itself.

After leaving his MP seat in 1988, David Crombie was appointed by the Government of Canada to head up the Royal Commission on the Future of the Toronto Waterfront. From 1992 to 1995, David Crombie headed the Waterfront Regeneration Trust Agency, established by the Province of Ontario to implement the 81 recommendations in the Commission’s final report. In 1999, David Crombie founded the Waterfront Regeneration Trust Corporation, a charity continuing the work of the Agency, with a focus on the completion, expansion and promotion of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail as catalyst for waterfront revitalization.
We’re excited to have him “on board” (pun intended), and we hope you can join us!
