I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinions even when they are terribly misinformed or based on paranoia.

I moved to this area when I was six. I've spent most of my life here. I drive 65 miles home each night to be here. My wife and children spend all their time here and I wouldn't want it any other way.

The KW area is rich in culture, history and ethnic diversity. It is relatively safe and quiet by today's standards.

Our two universities (University of Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier University) are know world wide and respected for their Computer Science, Engineering and Business programs.

Each year, this area is host to the world's second largest Oktoberfest.

The last time I checked, we have a much lower murder rate than Detroit. If people don't like the area, they should pack up their things and move to Detroit for all I care...
