Suburbs

LB and I watched the documentary Radiant City last night, an excellent overview of urban sprawl. The city it focuses on is Calgary, but in reality it could be anywhere that suburbs have supplanted careful urban planning with mixed use buildings and mixed income residents. Lots of Canada's foremost thinkers on urban planning and the drivers behind the behaviours that motivate suburban dwellers. Definitely worth the 90 minutes and the 5 bucks.
