Re: “Halifax as Narnia:
The existential fantasy of our seaside city

Funny, I didn't see the article ending on that note. It doesn't seem like the journey has completed, as the commentator above noted.

To move to a big city and disdain your provincial origin when you're young isn't really a groundbreaking perspective. What is more interesting is the story of what happens later, when you have children and your priorities shift (in a way you never expected) to things like an affordable family home, good schools within walking distance, and grandparents who babysit. Cities and towns the size of Halifax then gain new value which can eclipse the importance of the metropolis.

As someone who has done both (lived in a metropolitan centre and then deliberately chose Halifax, a new city, in which to raise a family), I've learned that a town's "importance" depends on what is important to you at various stages of life.

Halifax may never seem big to you again but it may yet feel like a place you want back in.
