This essay by John Sewell was a guest post on Brandon Donnelly's "Architect This City" blog.
The conclusion is:
"As I recount in `How We Changed Toronto’, the 1970s really did change Toronto for the better. The city has been coasting ever since on those successes. It is time for renewal, and using the successful mechanisms from forty years ago is something worth doing."
