There is a definite reason why Crime is going up in Mississauga. If you can’t figure out why, you are totally blind as to what is going on around you and the type of people moving into Mississauga , mostly overflowing from Brampton. What a shame Mississauga used to be such a nice safe place to live, when mostly civilized people lived there.

This is what happens when a Liberal government supports criminals more than the victims.

The crime rate isn't increasing because of immigrants. The crime rate is increasing due to negligence in law enforcement. Just remember white people are immigrants of canada and usa because they invaded and polluted and destroyed canada and usa. So if youre white and you insult immigrants just remember your ancestors were immigrants as well!!

Place has become a dump.

Young teenagers thinking they from the hood, when you just from The suburbs.

I mommy street doesn’t look like me anymore. It’s sad. Used to be such a great city. Now it’s been overrun with crime.

Cannot wait to get out here.

Clarkson is getting pretty bad a lot of strange people live in those apartments on Truscott, Southdown and Bromsgrove I always see police cars and a ambulance always headed to those directions recently.

I see white flight happening in Mississauga........I wonder why? So sad to see civil people moving out leaving the trash behind.

I lived in Mississauga for 38 years, was a great place to live. I have recently moved because of the crime rate. This is what happens when you let the wrong type of people into this country. I blame the Liberal government for this, and the laws that are not harsh enough. Jane and Finch is a perfect example, unfortunately Mississauga is turning that way fast.
AwesomeMississauga on Feb 22, 2020:
Honestly, even though crime rates MAY be increasing, that’s not mississauga that’s not Canada, Canada, Mississauga, are the people who live in it. Not the people who cause crime, what’s makes Mississauga is the good PEOPLE in mississauga, we are still one of the safest countries in the WORLD. And is US, who can keep Mississauga how it is!
Rahul on Jan 18, 2020:
I’m so disappointed in Mississauga, crime exploded especially around square1 and all across eglington area. Bristol rd going down too- people breaking into everything!!
So so upset at the leaders of our country for allowing polices and practises beyond our control, they have deeply affected cities and are slowing chocking them off. Bad bad governments. A great City, but governments over Canada fail. Other large cities Toronto, Scarborough, North York, Etobicoke, Hamilton, Brampton , Ottawa, suffering at the hands of our foolish government, cities of good people who are suffering!!! These Liberal leaders should all be thrown out of power. !! !!!!!!

Mississauga on Dec 19, 2018:
Time to move. I don't feel like I live in Canada any more. Sad.
Felix on Dec 13, 2018:
Yes... that is true that there is less white people each day. The colors drive the crime rate upwards, while everything else spiralls downwards. Sad.. Stop bringing dark skin immigrants.
Cooksville on Dec 09, 2018:
I also live around Cooksville and it is just like India but in Canada. The only good area in Cooksville is the neighbourhood close to the hospital because of the families that live there and there is a lot of Polish families there and many old people. Many Polish families are moving like my neighbour because of the crime and more immigrants but it is still bad compared to other areas in Mississauga. Mississauga is now not safe like it used to be.
Idk on Dec 09, 2018:
I live in Cooksville and it is getting more dangerous and scary every year with more crime and more problems. There is also a lot of immigrants in this area that may be good for some people that are new to Canada. 5 years ago I saw more families that live around hear that think that it is safe, but with the crime and drugs it is not know how it used to be, someone in my apartment died from drugs recently and that is happening a lot around this area. Also sorry I am writing late.

Mississauga is the WORST. Very Very liberal City , all things degenerate welcomed here.
Tony on Dec 03, 2018:
Mississagua is just a reflection of what Canada is turning into...
Farooq Khan on Nov 26, 2018:
Mississauga has nearly no white people left. The few that remain come to this page and can be seen ranting about high crime. Mississauga is a large city and crime rates are in proportion to other large cities. There are poverty-stricken pockets like Applewood and Cooksville. But even those are safe in daytimes. Mississauga has a lot of people of Carribean, Pakistani, Arab, Filipino, Black, and Asian (Chinese, etc.) descent. Absolute majority of these people from all communities are hard-working and tax-paying. House prices have climbed steadily and real-estate still shows a healthy demand. The mayor is a liberal party member that welcomes immigrants and that makes some ranters on this page frustrated.

The City is not what it used to. Very Sad.
