Activist Dave Meslin, founder of the Toronto Public Space Committee and Cycle Toronto, has a new book out, Teardown: Rebuilding Democracy from the Ground Up. Published by Penguin Canada, Mr. Meslin’s 363-page book is the longtime activist’s first—'and last,' he quipped—and is the product of six years of research and writing.
