    Working on a project with someone who wants to start a line of tees and wanted it to be based off the people of Toronto, so What are some stereotypes of people from Toronto? Specific regions like Scarborough and what not works as well. I'm only posting it here cause I know a lot of ya'll are from here, even if you aren't suggest something (be creative at least). Much appreciated :)

    i try to stay away from these but from what i've heard from people in classes/i've done business with/who live there now/etc:

    scarborough is a shithole and people that live there call it 'scarlem', i think it's pretty mixed over there. i think crime is pretty common there?

    brampton is pretty shitty too and generally black/brown dominated. i took a programming course at sheridan which is right on the border between brampton and mississauga and as soon as i crossed into brampton, it was rare for me to see someone who wasn't black or brown until i left. around here, it's pretty common to hear about people going to brampton to grab weed/coke and people getting jumped by like 6 people.

    mississauga is fairly mixed, i think, though it's got some ghetto loser seepage from toronto and scarborough, which sort of reflects on the community as you get closer to those borders. when you move farther away i guess it gets better.

    not sure about the others. oakville is a bit far to be considered toronto, i think.

    Put one of those chunky white skeezers in corn rows & white stretch baby phat, with a couple of mulatto kids in a shitty stroller, screaming into her cell phone about he no-good mans on the bus while stuffing down poeyes.

    markham area atm , I bus down everyday during the school year and I'll admit there are some crazies there, but in terms of Scarborough, it isn't that ghetto, though I can see where you are coming from cause I've seen alotta people like that white girl you posted above
