Parkdale has an authenticity that most of its residents wish to protect. This authenticity reflects who the community is and its residents as they are, not the aspirational façade of corporate and brand-dictated homogeneity. What may be missing from the urban development models are fresh approaches.

It's common to hear about houses going for hundreds of thousands over asking price, bully offers and bidding wars especially in large cities such as Toronto and Vancouver. The current housing bubble doesn't appear to be anywhere near to bursting, and every day we are bombarded with media headlines and reports on the escalation of rising prices for homes.

I wasn't going to Canada alone. Me, my husband and our two children, aged two and four, would be going together in what we'd described as an experiment and an adventure. The experiment would be experiencing life in Toronto to see if we could live out there permanently. No matter the outcome, it would certainly be an adventure, particularly for our children, who were excited about returning to Toronto, following our first trip to the city the previous year.
Last year the minister responsible for Canada Post issued what a prohibitory order to stop delivery of a disgusting hate rag known as Your Ward News by Canada Post carriers. Defenders of Your Ward News say this is a free-speech issue, and their rights are being denied. They are completely wrong on both counts.
