Suburban Heritage

One bit of silliness that arose from development proposal for 1131 Teron Road:

[Kanata North Councilor Marianne Wilkinson] wants the Beaverbrook community to be formally declared a heritage district and the city to maintain the original “garden city” vision of the area.

First, Kanata is not a Garden City; it turned out a Garden Suburb, so it didn’t even adhere to its original vision.

Second, it is beyond ridiculous to suggest that a 50-year-old suburb deserves heritage status. It strips the word of all meaning.
