I am intrigued by the epiphany most immigrants I know go through when it comes to housing in Canada. Including people that I know from my hometown, that lived a lifetime in a condo, in an urban environment. All they want now is a nice house in the suburbs.
It’s a reversed migration.
Our parents colonized the industrial areas in the 50s. Their sons evict the city.
