Toronto Teens Talk Urban Form

Two girls on the bus this morning:

"My family rented a cottage in ______ this summer.  _______ was pretty, but scary."

"Scary how?"

"It was like in those movies..."

"Perfect, but..."

"Yeah.  I can't imagine anyone actually living there.  The downtown was, like, one block."

"That's weird how all these other places have down-towns.  I thought only we had a down-town.  But there are all these  other places that have them.  All these little...towns."

"Yeah...  Towns."

"Who's that creepy old guy perving on us?"

"I don't know, but let's get off at the next stop."

"Yeah, there's, like, so many weirdos downtown."

dowdsa 26The sad thing about the Toronto-centric mentality is that those girls were talking about Ottawa.
