I'm just going to say it: I can't stand the term "West End" that is sometimes used in local media.

I find myself using "West End" quite often, but I might not mean what you mean: I use it to refer to Westdate and everything else between the 403 and Dundas. I could refer to "Westdale and Ainslie Wood", but I don't know that many of the people who live in Ainslie Wood East (403 to Cootes, I think), Ainslie Wood West (Cootes to Main West going up the hill) , and Ainslie Wood North (North of Main, West of McMaster) would even know that Ainslie Wood(s) is a (several) place(s).

Overlapping and confusing terms include West Hamilton, Ward 1 and West Town

Is the can't-stood term "West End" coterminous with "Ward 1"?

To the Police, "West Town" is more-or-less Ward 1 (Locke St. to Dundas)

And West Hamilton probably implies the old federal and provincial riding which more-or-less co-incides with "West Town".
