  • My city is having an identity crisis. It doesn’t know who it is or what it wants to be anymore.
    It’s teeming with too many new condo towers.
    Its transit system can’t keep up.
    There’s no vision at city hall.
    And our mayor... exasperates.
    I worry about how this place will be in 5 years.
    I was proud of this city.
    Now, for the first time, I’m dreaming of elsewhere. A new place to call home.
