If you have spent any time in the newer suburbs of Ottawa, you will be familiar with what now constitutes a neighbourhood. Driven by the city’s mania for suburban density, houses are shoehorned in and the streets are crowded with cars that won’t fit in the too-short driveways or the too-small garages.

Shopping is a strip mall or big-box store that you drive to. There might be a tiny park for children or a soccer field somewhere in the vicinity.
