White Squirrels

Michael Werner

First spotted on Queen Street West on the grounds of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, a burgeoning population of white squirrels migrated east to Trinity-Bellwoods Park, where they have captured the hearts and imaginations of local residents, artists and businesspeople alike. Due to chronic health problems caused by their recessive albino gene, the population has dwindled from an estimated 25 – 30 to just two squirrels. Michael Werner’s photos document their existence and activities in the park.
