How the shape of the land shapes our lives....

Geography: Calgary's hidden puppet master
How the shape of the land shapes our lives

This final paragraph of the article listed above also applies to most cities including our own.  When reading the article it is easy to substitute our own Cranbrook geography and to consider the parallel issues our city struggles with.
'Key to our future as a city and how we interact with each other will be a better understanding of how we use our geography to connect rather than divide us.
We can't move the Bow, and Pioneer Hill is here to stay, but we do have a choice of where and how we build our communities, where we create parks and put houses, what roads look like and how "walkable" our streets are.
We can't blame the glaciers for our bad city-building decisions.'
