Building Better Cities: Urban Renewal, State Power, and Democracy in 1960s Halifax and Vancouver
Professor, Department of History, University of British Columbia
This special City Talk is a preview of Professor Loo's current book project. Within this talk, Loo will explore Canada's tumultuous relationship with urban planners and planning. Focusing on the controversies in 1960s Victoria and Halifax, Loo demonstrates that debates about cities are rooted in contests over citizenship and the state.
