From SkyTrain Explorer: "The walk back to the SkyTrain station [from Joyce and Euclid] is through the recent developments of Collingwood Village which has brought a new vitality to the neighbourhood. It's a bit of a contrast to the 1909 description of the Collingwood East area that noted 'the country generally is undulating, the soil rich and scenery thoroughly British Columbian...the population is of about a thousand of the most prosperous and enterprising people to be found in the province.'"
