It's probably a little deeper that than. The NDP has liberal, progressive, collectivist foundations. And we are talking about conserving a distinct piece of architecture.

I hope I don't sound all Ayn Randy here, but good architecture and socialism were at war for most of the 20th century. And socially progressive motives and good architecture are only just coming to speaking terms well into the post-modern era.

And, no, I'm not joking: I believe that people's philosophy and their politics and their aesthetics correlate to some degree.

Architecture is political. And both architecture and politics ultimately come down to one's notion of the Good Life, whether one has articulated the Good Life in philosophical terms or not.
