We’ve been here two years now.

We started in a condo downtown, in Oliver. Then we moved to South Terwillegar, and spent five years there.

There wasn’t much to walk to around there. There wasn’t even a park close enough to walk to.

We were too used to walking everywhere.

We couldn’t do the suburbs anymore.
It wasn’t for us.

Now, we made it so work, home and daycare are this little five minute triangle.

We've (Candas and her partner, Timothy) lived in Boyle Street and in this house for 15 years. As a writer, editor and performer, we were living on variable incomes - so we were looking in the affordable areas.

We wanted something where there were trees on the street, a yard we could garden in and a house where we could spread out all of our artistic activities. Where could we live how we wanted to live and afford it and be able to walk downtown, walk to the Italian Centre, Chinatown, walk to the river valley.

Where else can you do that?!

This is an ultimately walkable neighbourhood. I'm not a big person, I'm not a skilled martial artist and I'm getting on in age, but I can walk everywhere in this neighbourhood at any time of day or night.

The reputation of this community is not only inaccurate, it's kind of annoying. There's nothing but richness to be found by having such a lot of different people.

People are missing out.
