Draper St., Toronto.

Where multiculturalism and the "new Canada™" can go f**k themselves.

While we're constantly told that "diversity is our strength" the linked article reminds us that familiarity, homogeneity, and a proud and shared history, all acting together, make something a lot more stronger.  This is what I took away from the piece.  It is these things that give the residents of Draper St. their sense of community and belonging.

Just something to think about as we recklessly destroy these building blocks of communities to make way for the "new Canada™."
