Interesting article on the future of infrastructure

I thought this was an interesting article on the future of infrastructure and this forum a fitting place to talk about it. It gives recognition to cities like Calgary and Edmonton for being progressive thinking in terms of moving people around. It also talks about managing resources such as rain water.

ISSUE: Canadian cities need to replace their aging infrastructure to accommodate new weather patterns, shifting demographics and social trends

SHIFT: Collaborative planning that transcends municipal departments and develops a holistic approach to emerging challenges is putting a new spin on infrastructure development

The Baby Boom did more than create an aging and overabundant population. It generated the birth of often hastily established municipal infrastructure that has long been showing its age.

Today’s infrastructure is no longer up to the task of handling population growth, urban intensification and climate change. For the most part, experts say, it is outdated, overburdened and too “heavy” for the 21st century world.

Oh, my mistake! Thanks for the heads up.

Just a curious question. I've been posting entire articles from the Windsor star in the Windsor threads since 2010, and I see others have been doing it there since 2001, but there's no mention to anyone about not posting entire articles. So this is a bit confusing.

Edit: I did just brush over the forum rules and I see the rule regarding third party articles now. I guess we were just getting away with it all these years in the Windsor threads.
