Your code red areas are made up of houses and other living units that people fled from years ago. Fled from the urban core to the sprawling burbs. The reason so many poor live there is because that is all they can afford. If you can afford to pay more why would anyone live across the street from a factory in a small dingy house or apartment? That is the real issue, the real problem.

What we need to do is find a way to get these people out of poverty and that is a process that has been tried but is ohhh so difficult. We used to live in the core and when we could afford to move we did. Yet if you gentrify all these poor neighbourhoods where will the poor go? I really don't see them ending up in Ancaster or Dundas.
