It has been said that success depends upon people. Build relationships, teams,partnerships – and motivate people to contribute. Cultivate leadership, creativity,excellence. Listen; seek new ideas and advice. These are important lessons thatI’ve learned from my four years here at Ryerson, and although there weremoments that I yearned for independent projects, I’ve realized that independentprojects, such as this thesis, still need the assistance and support from manyothers. On this note, I would like to thank Nina-Marie Lister for helping me to findmy direction, for providing me her thoughts and advice, and for her positiveenergy and enthusiasm.To my mom whose endless sacrifices have provided me with so manyopportunities and privileges that I sometimes find myself taking for granted. Thisis for you.To my lifelong “planning friends”, and to the “million dollar man”; it’s beenfabulous and you all have made such a huge impact on my life that a part of mewishes I could be in planning school forever! But the road is now taking another curve, so I look forward to experiencing the forthcoming with you all.
