Written by John Lorinc.
Published by the Penguin Group (Canada), 2006.


Large urban centres are experiencing a widening gap between rich and poor, mounting levels of violence, and sprawl-induced health and environmental damage. Well-trained immigrants struggle to find suitable jobs and decent housing, while big-city schools suffer from underfunding. Local governments lack the resources and political clout to act decisively.

In The New City, award-winning urban affairs writer John Lorinc offers a compelling vision of how to make Canada’s metropolitan centres sustainable, livable, and competitive in a world dominated by powerful mega-cities. Incisive and broad-ranging, this is a timely reminder that all Canadians must confront urban issues if the country is to succeed in the tumultuous economy of the 21st century.
"This optimistic vision of inclusive, healthy, workable, civil, and humane cities animates The New City, a book that leaves the reader both better informed and more hopeful about Canada's urban future." —from the forward by Anne Golden
