The CBC archive site has a 1969 video clip of about 11minuites that has some sections that are very pertinent to the Junction area right now.

All of her comments are equally as important as possible.

With her astute observations about the way we live, Jane Jacobs dynamically changed the urban landscape. The author, activist, theorist and self-taught philosopher challenged the establishment with her ideas about cities and the economy. In this CBC Television clip from 1969, Jacobs, a new immigrant to Canada, discusses Toronto’s quirks and Montreal’s creativity.
