On a self-guided walking tour of downtown Toronto, we passed by St. James Cathedral. The building is indeed beautiful, although it looks like it needs some renovation work. There were signs of significant wear all over the exterior.
One thing we noticed about the cathedral that we thought a completely heinous, shameful practice. Local dog walkers seem to make the cathedral grounds - as carefully manicured and lovely as they are - the focus of their walks, and allow their dogs to deposit their leavings everywhere, and do not clean up after themselves. Just disgusting, and in my opinion, completely disrespectful of this building and its institution. St. James Cathedral, and Toronto's Anglican community, deserves better.
