From this video you can hear a quote which is true for London, Ontario. London Ontario was built on corruption in that farmers were lured to the site under a pretense of free land by rich men from Toronto. Soon after many farmers arrived to begin taking up the land then they were told that their original agreements were null & void and they were notified of large debts which they were forced to pay. And this is what London was founded on.
It’s legacy continues to this day.
