Canadian Urbanism Uncovered



  1. I drove from Vancouver to the Yukon in the spring of 1988. Just outside of Whitehorse there were hundreds of billboards at the side of the highway. One night someone went out with a chainsaw and sawed them all down. There were NO COMPLAINTS! It was so nice to see the pristine wilderness again.

  2. Hi Dave,

    Perhaps this initiative could benefit from some acceleration in the form of corporate sponsorship. Something along the lines of “The Scotiabank Toronto Public Space Committee” or “The Budweiser Preservation of Public Realm Program”.
    Just a suggestion. That seams to be how it’s done these days.
