Walking the streets of downtown Hamilton proved educational for a student in the UWindsor master’s of social work for working professionals program.
Jeff Baxter was assigned to study a city neighbourhood and said he was interested in testing his preconceptions of Hamilton.
“As a resident of Guelph—the city with the lowest rating on the crime severity index scale in the country—I always had the perception that Hamilton was a violent city, and so tried to explore this issue further,” he said.
What he found surprised him.
