What is a nation?

From an editorial in today's Star:

"A nation must be more than a string of shopping malls."

Somehow it seems fitting to accompany this quote with a link to another article, in the Globe, about a church in York Region and its struggle against the march of so-called progress. Read paragraphs 3 and 4, which definitely wax a little too sentimental but still evoke some strong images of what life in York County and the rural areas then surrounding Toronto used to be like.
