Approximately 40 stone structures popped up overnight in the Humber River in the Old Mill area of Toronto and residents are mystified as to how they got there or who erected them:
"While Fletcher guessed that the inukshuk-like structures were put together by engineering students, Edravic said they were probably the work of anonymous urban artists.
'It’s almost like Banksy with his graffiti,' he said, referring to the iconic British street artist whose identity is unknown. 'Maybe there’s some strange meaning or significance behind it.' … Many have called the structures makeshift inuksuit, which are Inuit landmarks traditionally erected for various purposes, including indicating navigational routes and commemorating a person or event. The inukshuk is often associated with Canadian Inuit culture. It adorns the territorial flag of Nunavut, and, more recently, was featured as the logo for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
Regardless of what they are or who built them, one thing is clear: people like them."
