  1. Iris Street in the far west end is a very bad place – lots of low income housing and people are nuts. You would all be shocked to see what is happening here in Ottawa. Cornwall’s cops would go totally nuts in less than an hour working with Ottawa’s cops.

  2. Iris,/Elmira is not as bad as your saying. Yes there are government subsidized housing but there is also a private school, a nursing home, strip plaza, plus many residents that own very nice bungalows. The crime rate is actually pretty low considering the government housing and other cities have much higher.

  3. I live in Ottawa South and we have very nice homes and in fact just in the back of my building has homes in the value of around $1 million dollars and it means nothing. The crime is something else and the bad come out at night most of the time. There is a lot of social housing as well. I will have to look at Ottawa’s papers now. Iris is a well known street of trouble here in Ottawa.
