an uphill battle

I read an article in the Toronto Metro mini-newspaper. With some irony as I rode the subway into work (after riding the MiWay bus from home). It was interesting and sad at the same time.


The article was titled "Slow commute, frantic life: Report." They referred to the first provincial quality-of-life report at the Canadian Index of Wellbeing from the University of Waterloo.

Lots of thought-provoking info and numbers. This remark struck me:

"Participation rates in social leisure activities in Ontario dropped 4.4 per cent from 1994 levels. For women, the dip was 7 per cent compared to 1 per cent for men."


I thought of the RASC Toronto Centre and all the things we've considered to try to drive increasing membership numbers. I made a note to share it on the Operations group.
