    This collection of essays raises uestions than it answers but that's probably a good thing This is a complex topic and I liked the way the writers avoided the platitudes we have got used to hearing Although some of the essays might have benefited from development I was generally struck by the amount of thought that went in to this book at all stages selection of authors writing and editing

    This collection of non fiction planning perspectives from Torontonians of so many different backgrounds is so much fun to read about The book pinpoints so many of the problems faced by Torontonians both in the city and the suburbs from so many different perspectives This book really taught me that diversity in humans goes beyond ethnicity and that cities are by their very nature diverse places with complex needs of so many different types of people living in close proximity to one another It makes me see the best in every city and recognize the differences in people living around me and that regardless of whether your city is regional or global that it is inherently diverse and that each city has tons to enjoy Having consumed so much media filled with good Canadian urbanism I cannot wait to travel to the metropoli of our neighbors to the North seeing the home towns of people like Taras Grescoe Steve Paikin and Jay Pitter

    Over the last several months I read Scarborough Policing Black Lives and Brother I also watched the documentary Eastern They prepared me for what I read in Subdivided As a racialized urban planner you begin to notice privilege in how we plan and engage with our communities plan and fund transit and create social spaces I got to meet Jay Pitter in a span of 2 days in the midst of reading her and John Lorinc's book The prevalent themes as told by lived experiences which is something planners social scientists and some politicians aren't accustomed knowing or caring about All walks of life should read this book I certainly hope this book is part of the course material in planning journalism or any sociology program Strongly recommended

    Think you know your Toronto??? Think again I read this book as a bookclub read and was pleasantly surprised at the way the facts and intricacies of city building in Toronto were revealed in such an easy to read manor We had an amazing bookclub discussion at the end of novel that touched on race history of our city and some hot controversies Definitely recommend this read
