Is Surrey, BC the "Detroit" of Canada?

    Why or why not?

    If Surrey is not as good as any other BC city, SFU (Simon Fraser University) won't be having a campus there and endanger the safety of the students. And that campus in Surrey is a recent addition to the various existing SFU campuses.

    If there is a "Detroit" of Canada, it would be the Interurban Campus of Camosun College.
    It's in the middle of nowhere, and being a student there for even 1 year will send you into a downward spiral of mental health issues.
    I was a student there in 2007-2008 and I've never fully recovered.

    I like Surrey. The people are real and friendly. Even their crisis line is more reliable than Vancouver's: 604-951-8855

    Why it's not Detroit?....no steel mills, car manufacturing.....
