Carfree: Stories from the non-driving life

What does choosing not to drive mean in a world designed for cars?

Winnipeg, like most North American cities, has been shaped by the automobile.  City planners designed the urban environment around the idea of mobility, and the social and work life of the population followed. The car became a necessity rather than a  luxury; our environment demanded that we drive. So what does it mean, living in a car-based society, to make a conscious choice not to drive? In the new film CarFree: Stories From the Non-driving Life, a number of Winnipeggers speak of this choice and the effect it has had on their lives.
