Gastown, Vancouver

Everything is up for sale in a young and dumb frontier town like Vancouver: timber, real estate, conservatories. The quick buck often gets the first and best hearing over the long-term plan should such a thing even exist.

The most gorgeous, character real estate fronts onto our degraded downtown alleys. They could easily be returned to commercial/public use and the people, driven to find refuge there, returned to society. Greater cities find solutions through philanthropy and civic aspiration ...
Alas, we are all robber baronet, no elite - which is rich considering this is traditionally the land of the Potlatch.
