    All of you Toronto kids think you so tough. You live in Canada one of the most accepting and culturally diverse nations in the world. You guys turn fine neighborhoods in dirty places not ghetto’s I’m from the bronx I(the real ghetto) Toronto is such a poser city… Your gvment tries to help and you turn away and pretend to be ghetto. Canada is not Ghetto get that through your head…
