yup. every one i've met so far is super friendly. apparently that's the general consensus from the locals too; as far the the 'immigrant problem', it's the arabs they don't like. (north) africans (where most of them come from) are genuinely good people.
then i know somebody in geneva where they've got a bunch of west africans, and while they uphold a similar moral code so to speak, they exact vigilante justice in their own way. i was telling him my story of the pickpocketing, and he said yeah, it's a pretty big thing in europe, surprising it hadn't made it's way to canada. but he saw some arab looking dude grab a woman's purse and take off, and then a bunch of africans took off after them. he was talking to one of the africans who stuck around he was all excited saying 'oh boy oh boy they're gonna get his ****in ear!'
so yeah. don't steal around west africans if you wanna keep your ears on your head.
