Canada's Leading Thinkers Reimagine the City

As a part of its "Leading Thinkers" feature, the Globe and Mail has posted a series of videos on the theme of "Reimagining the City."

Videos include Larry Beasley on "How Vancouver got its groove back"; Nick Saul on "Why food banks are starved for ideas"; Bronwyn Guthrie on Toronto's traffic woes; Edward Glaeser on "How cities make us smarter"; Lloyd Axworthy on "Why Winnipeg's future is tied to aboriginal people"; Doug Saunders on "The city as global landing pad"; Joel Kotkin on "Why our future is in the suburbs"; Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi on "rethinking the role of the city"; Majora Carter on how "Economic development in cities can solve social ills"; and former Prime Minister Paul Martin on why Canada's treatment of its Aboriginal people is the country's "achilles heel."
