SSM is a PURE garbage town. Welfare bums. Homeless. Drug addicts. HORRIBLE decline in the last 25 years in quality of life. RACISM runs rampant in this town sadly. I was born there, lived all over Canada and the world. Nowhere on this planet is as worse as ssm

Yes there is crime…and there are addicts…but seriously this city is much better than most. Citizens are friendly and neighbours help each other. If there is crime that is seen it’s reported and the police DO COME. It’s not perfect…but there seems to be a lot of embellished stories

I'm from the Detroit MI. area and thought that Canada was a safe place.
But having our bikes stolen from the bike rack on the Van in Stault Ste Marie Canada.
And dealing with the police, who seems very busy with other crime.
I lost all interest in visting Canada again.

I have lived here for 61 years and the place has changed. I do not feel "safe" anymore. The downtown is rundown with graffiti, drugs, vandalism and theft. Our once friendly neighborhoods are hiding from thieves, drugged up people and mental health 8ssues are on the rise. The police are overwhelmed and with the catch and release have their hands tied. Criminals walk Scott free all day and night. Our politicians think a "Park" will fix the city rather than help these issues.

This city dosemt report violent crime and the police don't even investigate property offenses or car theft. There have been several police officers charged with criminal offenses but those individuals remain on the force and some have actually been promoted.

These 34 contributors are very bias, theres almost no risk of being mugged, robbed or anything of that sort during daylight hours. Walking alone at night could be a little dangerous but what city isnt?
