Rexdale is a neighbourhood in the northern part of Etobicoke, part of the city of Toronto, Canada.
It was developed in the 1950s by Rex Heslop, for whom it is named.
Recently, Gun violence and gangs have scarred the community, most recently in a shooting this summer that interrupted a four-year-old's birthday party. Four men were wounded.

Rexdale is a culturally-diverse, working-class neighbourhood occupying the North-West portion of Toronto. Although known for gang activity and high crime rates, Rexdale is no more dangerous than most of Toronto as a whole. You'll rarely see graffiti or discarded needles, and the people there can be super-nice - you just gotta treat 'em like human beings; smile and they'll smile back. Get on the bad side of the wrong people, you might get the shit beat outta you.
Hipsters from downtown will tell you the area is predominantly black (and therefor dangerous, because they're a pack of racist assclowns), when in reality, the area is generally a mix of Canadian citizens and immigrants from Italy, Eastern Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and India. The area is poor, yes, but frankly, I'd much rather deal with the "gangstas" from the Rex than the pretentious fucks from Wood-a-bridge.
Thornhill kid: "Yo, dude, I was in Rexdale last night, and this black guy jumped me! Like, shit, it's so dangerous there!"
East York kid: "No dude... I was there. That never happened."
Thornhill kid: "STFU, those niggahs gonna pay!"
East York kid: "... *sigh*"
To kill someone and steal their possessions, a common practice in Toronto's Rexdale neighbourhood - hence the name.
1) "Nice Shoes! If you weren't my friend, I'd Rexdale you for them!"
2) "President Bush announced plans to Rexdale the people of Iraq for their oil today."
I have four cousin that live there. I visit them every now, and then. It is indeed a neighborhood plagued by extreme poverty. Three of my cousin's friends have been killed so far, and there's probably more coming.
To top it off, two of my cousins are in a street gang, so I worry about them as well. I used to enjoy coming down there as a kid, but now that I see it for what it is, it's sort of depressing. While I'm playing computer games, and trying to find a part time job, they're out robbing stores, and getting into gang fights.
"Rexdale. The most well known ghetto in Canada."
