I watched this when @ChickieD first posted about it, but never posted back. It was great to see a wide variety of co-ops profiled, but I was left wondering how exactly most of them make rent.
Partly this is from the London ON brewers. They made me laugh, with their persistent mentioning of the “historic east village”. I lived in London for 12 years. There is no historic east village. That’s the EOA, or East of Adelaide. It’s great for cheap digs – a lot of art stuff happens in that end – but it’s not exactly gentrified or gentrifying. Those shots of pawn shops next to closed-up/relocated shops is more the norm.
