Oakville is not some alternate universe of white, beautiful people sipping daiquiris by the poolside. The majority of people don't make six-figure incomes. There's the occasional Louis Vuitton bag or Lexus in the school parking lot but it's not extremely common. It's not like on Gossip Girl or the OC, anyone who thinks that needs a reality check. Because the real estate is so expensive, many of the houses and properties are smaller, with the exception of the people who live right by the lake. Some people are even (OH NO!) on finical assistance. The population is principally white but it's not like we grab the pitchforks every time we see someone of another race. It's a pretty boring place to live, so most teenagers just sit and talk or do drugs (which are of a pretty decent caliber). There are some pretty sizable douche bags but there are also some genuinely chill people.
Me: Chill the fuck out, this is, you both sound like fucking morons.

Oakville is a great suburban community located on Lake Ontario. Many people look at Oakville with extreme jealousy, for example, citizens of the crappy little town of Mississauga. Mississaugians think Oakville is perfect and would love to live there, but are too jealous to realize it. People like these jealous Mississaugians have no lives, and spend their days trying to insult Oakvillians on, while Oakvillians are our having fun in the town. It is true that Oakville is one of the richest towns in the world, because many businessmen who work in Toronto are located in Oakville, and also because of the Ford plant, which is a huge source for jobs. Because of this, Oakvillians make much more money than other Canadians because they work hard.

Anyone who agrees with this article will give it a thumbs up. And anyone who gives it a thumbs down is admitting they are a very jealous person and in fact wish they lived in Oakville themselves.
Mississauga Kid 1: Dam, I wishez I lved in Oakvlle. Theyz lyk so cool ands uch.

Oakville Kid: Dudes, Learn to fucking spell, then get a job and earn some money.

Everyone who lives here refers to Oakville as a bubble, but in reality, they're all just in denial that they make up this so called bubble. Most of the girls here are obsessed with the OC, and Abercrombie and Fitch. The boys are obsessed with poker, and pretending that they don't watch the OC.

Mother: "Than take the other other Lexus."

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.
Oakville kid: My Mom's being so chate right now..;

Oakville kid: I got accepted in to Western!;

Mississauga kid: Man I hate Oakville. Its because I'm jealous that they're so awesome over there.;

Oakville Kid: Hey let's chill later
Missisauga Kid: Yeah! Those stupid stereotypes. You're cool.;

Long time Oakville resident: I'm glad I live in Oakville, its a beautiful town;

Oakville kid: Let's go get Starbucks in the Lexus. ;

Oakville kid: You up for some Tim Horton's? We can ride our bikes there;

Oakville kid: Man, these stereotypes sure are chate.

A town nearby to Toronto. Oakville houses the rich families of the GTA and has the recognition of being the richest town in Canada. Contrary to popular belief, Oakville is not filled with stereotypes and is home to regular people. Granted, these regular people have parents who actually worked in College and University instead of smoking dope or messing around during their high school and university life. To set the record straight:

1. Never has anyone said "Chate" in my presence.
2. Yes, people here watch The O.C. so do people in Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton and Hamilton.
3. Some of the girls here do look like Abercrombie and Fitch commercials; others however look like they belong in a Good Charlotte music video.
4. There is a drug problem in Oakville. There is a drug problem in Mississauga as well.
5. The entire friggin continent plays poker, we just play for money.
6. We have house parties. You're not invited.
7. Yes, we drive nice cars. This relates back to my point, people in Oakville actually worked for their money and worked hard.
8. Oakville is not stereotypical "Richtown". While the people here do have more money than you will ever see, we are not more shallow or have more wiggers here than anywhere else in Southern Ontario. In fact, we have less wiggers per square kilometer than any other Southern Ontario town.
9. We don't have more than one Lexus. That would be a waste of money, we diversify. Lexus, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and SUVs are all prevalent among families in Oakville.
10. Kids in Oakville are more likely to end up going to a decent University, getting a decent job and paying for your welfare checks than they are to live in their parents basements until they are thirty. Get your facts straight.

So, to all the people out in Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton and wherever else you might be, come to Oakville and see how it really is before you assume that because we have money, we have to be discriminated against.
Missisauga kid: Man, I wish I lived in Oakville, but I don't, so I'll just diss it and pretend I'm glad I don't live there.
Oakville kid: Shut up and get a life.
