The Honourable David Crombie, What We See contributing author and former mayor of Toronto, gave an exclusive video interview in David Crombie Park this weekend on sidewalk culture and Jane Jacobs' living legacy in Toronto.

Crombie is credited for implementing changes in housing, transportation and land-use policy that prompted Toronto's development of a vibrant urban landscape in the 1970s. The park that is his namesake sits amongst the co-op housing he helped put in place while mayor, one of many developments he says were inspired by Jane Jacobs' rigorous intellectual framework for developing cities.

Crack open your new copy of What We See to Crombie's chapter, "Jane Jacobs: The Toronto Experience" to read more about Jane's influence in this Canadian urban hub.
