Many people consider this the most crime infested neighbourhood in Toronto, the drug dealers and gangs have leaked out to all directions of these streets for quite a while, it is comparable to some parts of LA or Chicago in '86. However there are still many phonies and doushbags who use the name of the neighbourhood to scare ppl when they have no back
"My buddies went to jane and shepherd to fight some guys and they got jumped by 26 nigs"
Jane and Finch is neighborhood in the city of Toronto that is predominantly populated by African Canadians. It is known for its gun and drug crime. Many of the gun crimes are a result of gang warfare. Southside is Bloods territory and Northside is Crips territory.
Jane and Finch is not exactly "PLAGUED" with violence and crime. It has more crime than some other parts of Toronto, and it's been somewhat worse this summer (2005). But there are so many wonderful, talented, smart, kind, hardworking people who live there, too. I wish people would stop being so down on Jane and Finch, because bad expectations only perpetuate the bad realities.
"I wish you would stop thinking you have to be a thug just because you live at Jane and Finch."
Firstly, Jane and Finch is a great neighborhood. It is located in Toronto in the former North York region. Although I cannot deny the fact that Jane and Finch has a some flaws, it is wrong to categorize everyone that lives in Jane and Finch as a looser and ganagster wannabes. Jane and Finch was one of the first Government housing projects in Toronto. Due to this there are a lot of immigrants there, who are rather desperate, which, in a way explains some of the activity that goes on in that area. Despite all the negativity that people associate with Jane and Finch, there are a lot of scholars there who are attending post secondary school and are making something of themselves.
I have been living in Jane and Finch since I was 5 years old. I am currently 19 and attend the University of Western Ontario. Whoever the imbecile is that took the time to write all those untruthful and degrading comments about the residents of the Jane and Finch area needs to get a fucking life. It says you're from Kingston Ontario, what could you possibly know about Jane and Finch you trifling bitch. I wish I had something to say about Kingston, Ontario, but unfortunately nothing great has come out of Kingston, Ontario, so there's not much to talk about. They should have founded a better city for Queens University. I'm glad I rejected their offer and went to Western, I'd hate to have to come across ignorant people like that.
