Solidarity still exists and if you're not from here stay away from the park

Homeless are camped across from Start Me Up and down Gale Cres Hookers plying their trade on Gale Cres Encampments leaving a lot of garbage around Encampment and drug use increasing bad last year worse this year.

The city is one of the nicest in country and is generally considered a retirement area since the closure of Hayes Dana and GM. The government has added the MTO building, an new arena and the FirstOntario Performing Arts Center, not withstanding some very large Niagara Regional Police stations. The surrounding areas have much to offer in the way of fruit belt farms, tourism, wineries, the locks and schools; namely Brock University and Niagara College. Unfortunately, most jobs are seasonal and induce a feast or famine environment.
In short, if you're looking for a place to retire, the urban sprawl is moving from the GTA and Hamilton in an effort to find affordable housing and proximity for commuting. Ergo, demographic shift and gentrification of community is rising with an added bonus of multiculturism.
In summary the area is gorgeous, the houses and properties are cleaner and the previous comments stand out as truisms of our classist Canada.

This city allows camping across from Start Me Up. Does not care about the residents or taxpayers.
If you are planning on moving to St.Catharines, dont. Full of homeless people and politicians that dont care.
Just bring your tent and camp at city hall.

Getting better, more people, becoming nearly as diverse as GTA-regions but the south end of the city is still dogshit in some areas

All the poverty and crime from east hamilton is getting spread here. Getting wore by the year, crime is taking over the city slowly

Yes the panhandling is ridiculous at Geneva and Church delaying traffic to get money for drugs.

The panhandling and drug use is getting worse everyday. The city needs to help, our neighbourhoods are becoming unsafe. I have been harassed many times at Welland ave and Dieppe rd where they take up both side of the highways.
