A wealthy suburb just outside of Toronto bordering Lake Ontario. People from Oakville are held to many stereotypes, but contrary to popular belief we don't all sit at home watching The OC drinking Starbucks complaining about our Lexus'. Maybe we did watch The OC- when we were 13- but don't tell me people who aren't from Oakville didn't either. Starbucks is a coffee franchise- Sue me if I like my frappuccinos. And yes, maybe nice cars do cruise down Lakeshore- I'm sure there's plenty in other towns too. Just like how there's mansions, potheads and snobs in other towns as well. While it is true that Oakville is the wealthiest town in Canada, it is not true that we’re all rich snobs. The richest part of Oakville is by the lake where wealthy business men tear down old houses and use the land to build mansions. The rest of Oakville is filled with fairly new average/large size houses inhabited by good people. While it is also true many in Oakville smoke weed and say words like "chate" and "krawk" we’re filled with fairly well educated people. Not all of us are well off, but a good majority are. Oakville's residents consist of the rich, the elderly, and families with teenagers. We are all largely stereotyped by residents of Mississauga. Although some of us may fit the stereotypes in question, a majority of us don't and people from outside of town should get to know us before they diss our beautiful home. Hate Oakville? Take a walk along Bronte by the lake and then get back to me.
