The More Things Change......
24 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this online.I have always been interested in Toronto and it's history. I had seen it once before, about 1970 in a high school "social studies" class.

The main thing that struck me, apart from the obvious difference between the old and new Oak Street, is how societal standards and attitudes are always changing.

Here we see the creation of Regent Park, a perfectly fine and functional place to live, much better than what existed before, and yet just 40 odd years later, it is dismantled, at great expense, in the name of a "better" design!

New architecture and design cannot solve problems, people do.

The community members, with the help of the Police , need to weed out the bad apples and punish them, so that law-abiding people don't have to live in fear, otherwise the same problems will persist, regardless of design.
