Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I'll start this with - I am an immigrant. I received my Permanent Resident status in 2014 and passed my citizenship test last month. I am just waiting for my ceremony date now.
I've gotten to know Windsor over these last 5 years fairly well and don't think anyone ever tells you how wonderful you really are. Carousel of Nations? I'm in love with it. All of the festivals along the river? Summer is always entertaining! Art in the Park in Walkerville? I never miss it! Downtown on the weekends? I'm a bit old for that but I love seeing so many people out having a great time!
I can see Windsor is going through some things. Unemployment, low wages, high housing costs, rising river levels that will likely never go back down, manufacturing struggling, sure, Rose City is having a rough spot. That's why I feel the need to tell you this.
I love you, Windsor. You're beautiful. You're interesting. You're a delight. In these last 5 years I've traveled to a lot of places in Canada in order to better get to know my new country and am always proud to tell people Windsor is my home.
