VELD's Vrijdag Verses – 6

“The technological development, especially in agriculture, as well as increased contact with industrial cities, movement of people from rural communities to urban centers, and spread of urban beliefs and values due to the improved means of transportation and communication have radically transformed rural Canada in recent decades. The transformation has been so dramatic, and urban influence so pervasive, not only in Canada but also in most industrial societies in the Western World, that some scholars have proclaimed the extinction of the rural society or at least of any meaningful distinction between urban and rural society”
