City Council created False Creek South in the spirit of 1970s liberal ideology as an innovative built environment, for a mix of incomes and households. This talk will highlight the distinctive features of the False Creek South community. Its distinctiveness is emphasized in contrast to the very different post-Expo development on the north shore, characteristic of the current era of globalisation. To what extent can False Creek South’s innovative characteristics be retained and extended in the context of the Global Capital/Eco-density world of the present?  About Dr. David Ley Dr. David Ley is an Emeritus Professor of urban and social geography at UBC.
