Thanks for this story. Forgive the self-righteous comments. They don't get it. I can only imagine the courage it takes to tell a story like yours. Thanks for sharing it with me.

My life behind the welfare wall

Hi there, Oh yes the soccer field we went to once where a bunch of teens were smoking dope and drinking.Yeah I would want to play tennis on Bayer's Road you might as well say. There is no greensapce there at all. They just got the walking trail up and running when we left. We hated Fairview so much. We could not wait to leave. We moved there with an open mind but it was awful. We lived there exactly one year to the day.The only good thing I can say about Fairview is that the older Fairview-ites are nice people. The younger ones, not so much. Also, there are some good restaurants like Saj House, Fung Wah, Yummy Deli and Freeman's. What crime did we see from our glass box overlooking Giant Tiger you ask? Well, the first day we lived there we saw a gang of guys haul a guy out of the car at the bottom of Rosedale and proceed to beat him. Welcome to Fairview LOL! We saw a SWAT team take down 4 guys who had stolen guns on the next street over. I saw a mother with a 4 year old girl openly selling drugs in our parking lot Fistfights were common most weekends on Dutch Village People smoking crack by the dumpsters by Giant Tiger Impaired driver being arrested A man and woman in a fistfight A bloody guy crawling along Dutch Village as my wife and daughter were out for a walk A guy hitting another guy over the head with a bat or pipe Ambulances non-stop. And cops. My wife said to the superintendant once "Must be a lot of Seniors living up on Frederik. The ambulance is always going up." He replied - "Those people won't live to be seniors..the ambulances are going to O.Ds" These are just a few of the incidents we saw. There are tons more. I hope it does improve.
