Maclean’s article looks at what’s killing rural Canada
Are you the type of person who views life as a glass half-full or a glass half-empty? Every community can be viewed for its pro’s and con’s and forecasting the future of rural communities may depend on the lenses you choose to use. If you are like RPLC members, Bill Reimer and Sarah Breen, you would likely view rural communities as places with connectiveness and as areas for potential growth – utilizing a glass half-full approach. Maclean’s recent article on “What’s killing rural Canada,” however, takes the opposite approach – a glass half-empty – in highlighting some of the potential downsides of small-town life. At least this much is true – nobody has a perfect crystal ball in which to see the future but the need to pay attention to life in rural communities is undoubtedly an issue all Canadians should be focused on.
