Yorkville faces another wave of change
from Globe and Mail
Sometimes, a city gets exactly what it needs when it needs it. For instance, the year the CN Tower opened was the same year Toronto finally eclipsed Montreal to become the largest and most economically powerful city in Canada. For Toronto to get there, however, it needed confidence; it needed places that felt new, different and worldly. Up until the 1930s, Toronto had maintained the stiff upper lip of its English and Scottish heritage: A nice place to live and work, but there was little play. Dinner was to be served at home and Sunday was legislated as the Day of Rest.
