Majority of the people I associate with (mid 40's with 1-3 kids) would only ever consider new suburbs type areas. they have a tough time seeing past the partially boarded homes in that area. I personally love Pointe Hebert, I don't need a lot when I have a deck and hot tub on my rooftop and an extremely short drive to work!

It would be nice if the Province was able to instill similar fees to developments within 30 kms of the perimeter to stop growth outside the city limits and have them pay their fair share.
