Are the city planning / urban planning schools different in Canada than the US city planning /urban planning schools?
The reason I say that is most cities in Canada and very much at the east coast seem to have embrace the suburban look and feel than the urban look and feel in the US .
Typical of a Toronto suburb look and feel of post ww2
The US urban look and feel http://www.flickr.com/photos/61093568@N03/show/ ( this look and feel is typical of most cities in the US , nothing strange about it well very noticeable in the sun-belt cities.
I think this urban look and feel was typical in the US from 1920 to 1950 and some cities 1920 to 1960 in the US .Even the neighborhood built from post ww2 to now in the US are not so crazy like this http://www.flickr.com/photos/61100570@N02/show/
