It isnt about wanting the 'hood' to be tough, it's about naming off the areas affected by cut backs, neglect, the emergance of crack cocain in the 80's (or did you think that the residuals of drug abuse is souly confined to american cities?), and racism (which is harder to address in canada since everyone swear that canadians arent racist). No, canadian cities dont have over 300 murders yearly, but then canadian cities dont have over 15 000 gang members all trying for the same piece of pie. heads dont clash up here, because those in charge arent challenged. yes, there are kids on this trying to make their little back water town sound like compton, but i'm not 1 of them. i pick facts from nonsence and back oit up with news articles (4 what they're worth).
