This looks like a very interesting movie. Jay Teitel has written a lot on Canadian suburbia. We're going to look back in a generation and wonder why we built the cities we did. The "reformers" of the 1970s opposed high-rise and density growth in the downtown core. They played into the hands of developers, land speculators and the huge highway construction lobby that has grown rich on Canada's urban sprawl. Our suburbs are cold, ugly, and very unsuited to raising kids, especially teens.
