I landed in Leaside uknowlingly, My Wife bought all our homes, and we were more concerned with proximity to Down Town for her, and proximity to the boy's Private School.

Pockets of TO have larger representations from specific areas, I went to Parkdale Collegiate, at that time predominantly Ukrainian and other East Europeans, I was definitely made to feel like an Outsider.

I now live in a community with the average age of almost 60, almost 100% white, except for the Mexican Migrant Workers, just the way it is, older Canadians were predominantly from Europe originally.

Those that mind don't matter, those that matter , don't mind.
Indeed. But I thought you went to Cedarbrae.

But – I want a place green enough that my child can go outside to play without having to deal with cars on busy streets nearby. I hate row houses with a street in front.
I need to travel abroad occasionally so it would be nice to be near a major airport, and at the moment I am looking mostly in the area of Vancouver, though I would consider anywhere (and cost is not a big problem if all else is right). I would like to rent at first, later buy or build. ( I think we would prefer all the way east, Montreal, Toronto, Quebec, or all the way west, BC)

Finding a community that is both big enough to have good facilities, and rural enough to have lots of green space has been difficult.
We need a suburban community where people are close, but cars are kept at a distance. Can anyone out there make any suggestions?
Thanks,
Dale
