But that's the thing, the younger generations in Victoria have no desire to do away with the City's stock of old buildings.
The generations of Victorians that once razed much of historic downtown Victoria in their days of young adulthood (or stood idly by while political agendas of the day allowed such things to happen) seem to believe that the young adults of today are equally as unmotivated and disinterested in the urban form of their city.
That might be true, but when I was younger I was to busy "playing" to be interested in saving old buildings or bridges. I think as a person ages you question your own imortality, and you tend to want to keep some of the old familar things/heritage around.
Anyone can ask themselves, what old momento do you have squirreled away that you can't part with, but that would be of little value to another person?
Isn't this a form of heritage, except on a smaller scale?
