Also from that article:

The first thing you see when you get into Uxbridge is the Walmart sign. And it’s a funny thing to admit coming from Riverdale, but when I see that sign, I think, ‘I’m home.’

;-)

That article is a bit misleading because it talks about the exodus to "the burbs" and pokes fun at "propagandists" who don't like cul-de-sac suburbs - then goes in great detail about a bunch of examples of people who moved from Toronto to old neighbourhoods that happen to be in smaller towns - even talking about one family who moved within walking distance of downtown Dundas. If downtown Dundas is "the burbs" then I guess that article has a point...?

None of those families moved to a new construction home in what would be considered "suburbia" by anyone.
