London is a city of about 360 000. It is situated in the heart of south-western Ontario. The downtown area is currently undergoing a major re-juvination. City Hall has put a lot of money into the new John Labatt Centre, to host the London Knights OHL hockey games. They also invested in a new public library which was voted the best in Ontario. London is a great place to live, and raise children. Just don't go down Buley St, Cascade St, or anywhere near Ontario St if you're not prepared to protect yourself. London is the friggin best city in all of Ontario.

London, Ontario is city in Southwestern Ontario

London is a city in Southern Ontario. It is mostly populated by blue-collar, working class people. It does have a small, educated and rich minority who live mostly in the north, near the university or the Hyde Park area. Outsiders think that London a conservative city but in actuality it is very left-wing and socialist. People who offer essential services, like bus drivers, are known to go on strike at a moment's notice when they risk losing their $26/hour salary and lifetime benefits that would rival a civil servant's pension.

London's claims to fame include the University of Western Ontario, lots of trees and a "world class" hospital, though that doesn't change the fact that the emergency room has third world class waiting times.

Places to hang out include Richmond street and its many drinking establishments. There isn't exactly a vibrant night life. Fun is what you make of it.

Safety in London is not really an issue unless you're a drug dealer or a prostitute. Just don't venture into some areas EOA (East of Adelaide) and be careful when in areas like Kipps Lane and the White Oaks if you don't want to come across groups of immigrant kids who like to beat the shit out of people just for the fun of it.

Overall, London is one of those cities that is only worth living in because of you got a nice job or because you have to go to school there. Nobody moves to London because they are attracted to the London lifestyle, if there is such a thing.

The shittiest shithole in Ontario
London is the place you don't want to go
We have Thames River The Lame Version and we try to be england and fail.
We also try to be Toronto. We fail at that too.
If you are unfortunately born here, you should leave as soon as you can because the Thames is filled with toxic fumes and three headed fish
Never head EOA or to a bar unprotected. You might get shot or hit up by our hookers/pimps.
But don't worry, our shortage of doctors and/or compotent people will make sure you aren't completely dead before they attend to you.
We have the University of Jim Bob's (aka Western Ontario)
We have a terrible bus system
We have a high ass tax rate
And a generally shitty set of leaders.
