    “Delightful pic. These children are the future of Canada. My heart goes out to them. GOOD LUCK KIDS, you have a great life ahead of you.”

    Yes, good luck kids. Just a word of advice, get out of Bells Corners if you want to get anywhere in life.

    – You could argue that Bells Corners doesn’t suck, no? It has its problems but also lots of advantages.

    JJ, there are far far worse places then Bells Corners. Just a example – last year I was in an older suburb of Toronto, population 10,000. Their crime rate is far higher than in BC. Their jobless rate is around 26% while in BC it’s only 9%.
