Olive: Youth steer clear of car cutlure [sic]
O Toronto Star of my childhood awe with print journalism: how far you have fallen in these latter days.
It's a shame, because David Olive is a smart commentator and his column always provides food for thought. This one covers the recently-noted decline of driving among young people.
"Younger people today - in fact, people of all ages - no longer see the car as a necessary expense or source of personal freedom," says Toronto-based urban futurist Richard Florida.
"In fact, it is increasingly just the opposite: not owning a car and not owning a house are seen by more and more as a path to greater flexibility, choice, and personal autonomy."
Confidential to the Star: copy editors are not just a cost centre to be minimized. The kinds of people who read newspapers care about this stuff, even now.
