Move Could Doom Beaver

As names go, the Stanton drain is pretty unimpressive, evoking a rusty sewer pipe spewing effluent. The reality is far different — it’s at the center of a dispute between environmentalists and city hall, as well as the focus of a project on which the city and developers have already spent $11 million. The controversy was on display this weekend as about 30 people hiked along an abandoned rail right-of-way north of Gainsborough Road in Hyde Park to see first-hand city plans that would destroy what the drain has become: home to two beaver, with wild flowers and bushes along the waterway’s edges to complement the deer and birds in a nearby woodlot.
