I'm from the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada. Home of crooked politicians and cops, hardcore drug problems, poverty, destitution and downright squalor in some areas of the larger cities. This place has many many problems, but despite them its home and I kinda love it.
There are some positives however: not overpopulated so you can get to where you want to go quickly and with ease unlike a certain larger city to our north. Has a slower paced lifestyle, which suits me, affordable and there is beauty to be found if you know where to look, and of course, wine country.
