If 'suburban life in the '50s' means knowing your neighbors, and celebrating community, and looking out for one another, then yes, I am longing for that. You may note from my article that I was celebrating the socio-economic diversity in Strathcona, and I have no problem with the Good Sheppard construction, and think it will be a great addition to the neighborhood. I was sitting on the SCC during the tail end of much of it's opposition to the Good Sheppard build, and from what I gathered, much of the dispute was how the Good Sheppard organization had totally failed to engage the community in any meaningful way. They had their plan, and by God they were going to fulfill it. I like to think that if they had bothered to engage in any kind of meaningful dialogue at the beginning, then they could have gotten what they wanted, and not put so many noses out of joint in the process.
