“What drew me to the neighbourhood is that it’s like a little village. It’s a very social place and lots of pedestrian people. I’ve been all over this city and there’s nothing like this place. It’s a beautiful neighbourhood. I mean, look at those old trees…
There’s a sense of community here that you can’t put to words. Look at the flood for example. The city came to help, and then the neighbourhood came through as a microcosm of support. Lots of people here are very conscious of the ‘neighbourhood first’ mentality, even through supporting local businesses and events.
I’m a delivery agent with Canada post for over thirty-one years. I’ve spent probably twenty-seven of those years in this neighbourhood–Sunnyside and Hillhurst, I mean.
Yup. Long time.” Edward Cox, Delivery Agent, Canada Post.
