A little bit of Jane Jacobs (from 1969)

The CBC Online archives have a clip you can watch and see Jane Jacobs being interviewed about how she feels Toronto and Montreal worked at the time (March 2, 1969). It is a little introduction to the woman who has inspired the Jane’s Walks that will be held this coming May 2 & 3, 2009, including the one the SDHS will be hosting in St. George.
