Oakville is more than just commuters..Oakville has a huge dogwalking contingent, downtown,on sidestreets, through the ravines and parkland. People are people .and while to an outsider being given a tour by a realtor, things may appear picture perfect. People are people. The pace in Oakville, unless you are on the main throughfares is less frenzied. Greater integration of transit would be good....but compared to many urban,and suburban sites..Oakville is very walkable, scenic,and relatively safe. With urban sprawl, of course this can change ..and is already changing Oakville.....but people are people. And life can bite..really hard whether you are in TO or in Oakville....And whether you are in To or Oakville, life is what you make of it. But atleast commuting in and around Oakville in a few hours or a day is doable....unlike To..which has become a jumble and a mega mess.....and Oakville has a huge number of coffee houses....on its main streets...and the downtown sector still has a human face....Life and Oakville are what you make of it...just like anywhere...
