Why Mississauga? It's ok in a Milton Keynes, the office, kind of way.

If renting then I suppose it don't matter we're you live as you can move about anyhow.
Not the bit I live in. North of QEW agreed, some horrible bits, but not where I am. It's like the nice bits of old Oakville with a shorter commute to TO.

I wondered about that too. Doesn't seem very spooky from here. As I've said many times on here, I hold no particular candle for Oakville: some bits are so stupidly overpriced it's ridiculous; other bits have so many oversized houses crammed on to tiny lots you'd have to step inside from the backyard to swing the proverbial cat. But it's not too bad overall and there are some lovely people who live here. I can't really see how anyone would be spooked.

I had to look up "Sheridan Homelands," I'd never heard the term. Turns out it's that chunk of western Mississauga between the QEW and Dundas, Erin Mills and Winston Chirchill. Each to their own, I suppose, but from the Google satellite image it appears indistinguishable from all the other subdivisions in the area except that is surrounded on three sides by industrial and commercial lands. Much like most of Oakville (including the part where I live) it's nothing to get excited about but I'm sure makes for a reasonable place to hang your hat.

Spooky due to old horror movies/tv shows, they had streets like Oakville.

I prefer Sheridan due to having larger plots and a garden that I can call a garden. Plus the homes don't seem so manufactured. I think the prices are about the same.
