I am a Canadian and live across the pond. We in Southwestern Ontario Canada(see a map) have felt the brunt of the economy as well as Southwestern Ontario is home to the Big 3 automakers. Not everything is built in Detroit.
Now Ontario isnt as near as bad as the eye sore pictures depicted in the photos but what most people realise that a large part of Detroit is beautiful.
Henry Ford Museum area in Dearborn,Gorgeous.
Clarkston home of Kid Rock- waited 2 hours to get into eat....cant be that bad with 2 hour wait
Royal Oak, Bloomfield Hills,Beverly Hills Mich Wink and many more are beautiful and thriving.
Not all of Detroit is a dump(as article depicted it). Yes there are areas of Woodward that would make you blow through a redlight windows up and doors locked, and some areas are self infliected with drugs,crime,violence,low income housing but that is in any major city. Chicago,NY,LA,etc.
Sadly I believe that article made it worse that it actually is. Michigan is a beautiful state.

Boy am, I one proud Canadian.
