Article by ROBERT TITTLER, SPECIAL TO MONTREAL GAZETTE
This week on Inside From An Outsider we find an article that is all too telling of the times. This story, be it a microcosm, signifies what is happening at a much larger scale. Community staples are swiftly being replaced by large developer creations with no real proper integration into the area. Instead, they promote secularism, setting up expensive condos that prove not much rhyme or reason for the social trends of that given region.
It all comes back to social cohesion and this topic will be heavily covered on Inside From An Outsider.
Do you find staples in your city/town/area being replaced with new unfit developments?
What would be some alternatives / insight to give developers when coming into a community?
Thank you for reading!
