Inspiring article, and yes, I agree that this community is largely demoralized and uncertain about its own future. But I think the conclusion is an indication of much of that demoralization- we are still looking for leaders, forgetting that we don't much like to be led.

I don't really understand the need for community leaders, truth be told. Why wait for someone else to come along and do something that communities can do for themselves, as individuals and cooperatives, for instance. The folks at the Sky Dragon Centre, and the Positive Power co-op raising windmills on hills around the Hammer are better indicators of community inspiration than a public call for leaders.

Not everything can be solved without government (bike lanes, for instance) but there is a great deal more can be done than is done at the moment, without waiting for leaders to tell us what to do.

Fact is, we've got the leaders we deserve here.
