Re: Why did you choose to move to Canada?

I wasn't joking. That's what the street looks like. I'm not comparing it to anywhere else, not by count of bums nor by degree of threat from the bums. I'm just saying there are just a lot of...

Re: Why did you choose to move to Canada?

Re: Why did you choose to move to Canada?

Re: Why did you choose to move to Canada?
