    ...one more Canuck!

    Hi, I live in Toronto and I have to say, this site is like a breath of fresh air. It’s so awesome to see so many viewpoints on urban issues in one place. And you’re all so civil…even friendly, a good environment indeed! As for me, my slips of paper say I’m a planner (02) and sociologist (98) and my ‘thing’ is crime prevention, through a multidisciplinary approach. Right now though, I’m an analyst for the provincial justice sector…almost, but oh so very far from what I want. I have never posted on any other site before…although, I had some earlier posts that got wiped in the late summer Cyburbia crash…no worries, I’ll try again. Cheers everyone.

    Have we not reached our legal limit of Canadians yet?

    Welcome CityGrrl. Stick around and post often. It will be interesting to hear how you incorporate planning into crime prevention.

    You've never worked as a planner in Cali I see... each site plan you review has a crime prevention component to it (lighting, entrance locations and visibility from streets, etc.).

    Welcome citygrrl... nice to see another person from north of the border.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Hello and welcome.

    You need to review some more threads if you think people are always civil on Cyburbia .

    Keep your eyes open for JNL, a Cyburbanite from New Zealand. She is a Criminologist and very interested in CPTED. (She is away for a few days so she may miss your introduction thread).

    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Thanks guys. It’s nice to see a good Canadian showing on this site and a fair bit of interest in designing for Safety also.

    JNL, are you also into the Safe Cities stuff? The City of Toronto put out some pretty good literature on it the late ‘90s but I don’t think much got implemented in the public sphere. Seems like the limelight got hijacked by the Healthy Cities Approach. Could you give us an overview of your conference when you get back?

    TranPlanner, thanks for the email...it made a difference in me coming back.
