Unfortunately, I have to agree with Shawn (or is it Sheri?) on this point. The North End is fairly child and family friendly whereas many other lower-city neighbourhoods are not. In particular Beasley, Landsdale, Gibson, and Keith are especially child and family unfriendly. The City didn't bother to put up "You are now entering a child and family unfriendly neighbourhood" signs facing in the opposite direction but they might as well have done that.

These signs aren't aspirational -- they're descriptive. As a Beasley resident they speak to the failure of the City to make all neighbourhoods child and family friendly. Had the City achieved that goal, there would be no need for such signs. I don't intend this as sour grapes towards the NEN, but rather as a criticism of City Hall.
