Because, of course, Scarborough is...

...virtually indistinguishable from any other community in Canada...

"This could be anybody's house, anybody's neighbourhood and it's quite alarming," Det. Sgt. Justin Vander Heyden said.
Scarborough, Scarborough... that sounds so familiar.

Let's take a trip back to 2007...
Toronto Councillor Norm Kelly had issued a call for city council to ask the media to sign a "protocol" in which news outlets would agree to stop identifying Scarborough as the location of crimes occurring east of Victoria Park Ave.

Hours earlier, around 1:30 p.m., a 17-year-old was stabbed repeatedly in a fight near Lawrence Ave. W. and Weston Rd.

It was not immediately clear if the teen would pull through.

Ten hours earlier, around 3:30 a.m., a man was shot in his thigh in the Annex.

On Thursday a group of youths armed with knives rampaged through the city’s downtown core terrorizing people in the wee hours.

Six people were mugged in four separate incidents in a violent 10-minute span, three were sent to hospital with stab wounds.

“It’s not the safest neighbourhood, but it’s a place to live, right?”

Of course Russell Williams made Hastings less safe per capita than Toronto, you paranoid nut.

Won't it be great in Harpertopia where all the bad guys have been executed and the only crime is failing to love the Leader enough?
Doesn't it make you want to throw open the window and shout for all to hear, "Heil Harper!"?

My wife and I left Scarborough and moved to rural B.C. Because of the constant worry about our safety. We have never regretted the move.
In our new home it was delightful to go shopping after dark
Without fear. Out here the civic leadership actually works for the people and we don't have reporters sneaking around politicians families. Of course we have the added bonus of McGinty and Syd Ryan staying back there while we enjoy life out here.
Scarborough in my rear view mirror was wonderful.

"nonny bleats... Harpertopia where all the bad guys have been executed"

do you ever actually listen to yourself, nonny?

funny too, how it's always the compassionate, intellectual left throwing out the "n" words or prattling on about fags.

think you'd have to know Toronto to know about your Scarborough. Over here it's a lovely seaside resort.
