    This week on Urban Myths we are looking at the William Whyte neighbourhood, home to historic Selkirk Avenue. But our interviews today all take place 5 blocks north on Alfred Avenue. There, we found a pocket of home owners who buck the trend of being renters, which are the majority in the area. All of these residents were able to buy their houses with help from different incentive programs over the years and ended up developing deep roots in the community. Perhaps no more than Cliff Warren. Marcy Markusa pulled up to his modest bungalow and was greeted by a portly 10 year old pug dog named Murray.

We are meeting homeowners on Alfred Avenue, all of whom bought their houses through different incentive programs over the years. Through them we are understanding what difference that can make in an area. Alfred is five blocks north of Selkirk Avenue, and it has a deep history of multiculturalism. As you'll hear, it still thrives in William Whyte. Marcy Markusa visited Nancy Jimenez at her William Whyte home.
