A resident of Brooklin is called a Brooklinite. Brooklin used to be a small village in Ontario, Canada, just north of Whitby, Ontario. It has slowly been eaten up by Whitby and is often referred to as "North Whitby" by any who live in Whitby. Brooklinites will scoff at the "North Whitby" term and demand that you say Brooklin. Brooklin is in the 905 and the GTA.
Re-zoning has caused a population boom in the last ten years turning it into a high end bedroom community. People who live in the new developments around Brooklin are mostly young families who work in Toronto who want to live “in the country” which is ironic since new residents are also likely to complain about the smell of freshly fertilized fields and the venting of barns. Oh, the irony.
An LCBO and Beer Store have been built in Brooklin, which is a big deal to Brooklinites.
There are a large number of young wiggers in Brooklin who need Clint Eastwood's portrayal of Walt Kowalski to impart some wisdom to them. As with most wiggers, those in Brooklin are rich white kids who are deeply immersed in fashion, but they don't want you to think so. Most, if not all, of these wiggers would make very poor ganstas and don't do much better in the workplace since they're trying to be more gansta than the other rich white kids obsessed with fashion. Many of them originally moved to Brooklin from Toronto with their parents. They think they're cool but really everyone is laughing at them.
Brooklin is not Brooklyn.
Person 1: You're from north Whitby aren't you? What's the deal with all the wiggers?
Person 2: It's Brooklin! It's not Whitby!
Person 1: Yeah sure, it's "Brooklin" but what's the deal with all the wiggers?
Person 2: Their parents moved here from Toronto. If you laugh at them they run away.
