Some people do like owning houses and living suburban lifestyles, but they lose focus of things beyond the car quickly after a while. The suburban myth harkens back to people thinking about the suburbs of their grandparents day: i.e. Concession St, etc. These grid, treelined streets were walking distance to everything. I believe that is the goal of modern urbanism to create these kinds of places. It is in this regard I think Vancouver and TO are failing with just the marching of giant condos which increase density, but become high rise gated communities, a vertical suburb.
