Summer 2015- Picnic at McCaul-Orde Park Toronto

Picnic in the park to celebrate the planting of Fiona's (aka Fi B.C. - pronounced Fee-bee-cee) commemorative tree. Thanks to generous donations from Fiona's former co-workers, and tireless efforts by Louise Dixon, we were able to get the tree planted just behind Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. Pictured here coworkers from the Culotti, Spence and MacNeil labs.
