I've lived in Windsor, Hamilton and currently Oshawa. I've lived in other cities across Canada but these three were "blue collar" cities pretty much reliant on a single industry. Windsor sucks. It's not called the a**hole of Canada for nothin'. The weather sucks, the water is chewy and stinks, acid rain and Detroit only a mile across the river make it a truly crappy place to live. Not much going on there unless you like gambling or drinking.
Hamilton isn't too bad if you live on the mountain and never go downtown. Getting around in Hamilton is one of the biggest pains in the ass cities I've had the misfortune to live in. The air stinks and I didn't really find the population all that friendly.

Now I live in the "bad" part of Oshawa. I laugh when I hear that. It's certainly not the best neighbourhood I've lived in but I've been to a LOT worse in other cities. At least most of my neighbours here are friendly.
The city itself has a decent amount of green space although I will admit the sprawl is getting ugly.

It's not the best city I've lived in although it does have it's good points to be sure. But there's a list of cities below it that I wouldn't move to if you put a gun to my head.
