People in Windsor ON
Windsor’s population is about 350,000 considering the metro Windsor. The vast majority of them are students, university staff, factories, and casino workers.
The majority of people are white, with minor groups of Arab and Chinese.
Despite most Canadian cities with clean weather, Windsor is polluted throughout the year due to the factories that are operating on both sides of the border. Because of this, Windsor is the warmest city in Ontario. (Pollution isn’t always negative!)
Make sure to have your passport handy when you travel to Windsor because this is the scene you see almost from everywhere in the city.
It’s so tempting not to cross the border while you see this all day long, especially because most locals cross the border every week to buy clothing and groceries.
If you are an international student going to Windsor, then get ready to get a US visitor visa in case your passport isn’t visa-free for there since all of your future classmates would end up there on weekends and you don’t want to look at them by that binocular in the picture above all day long!

Thank you for your comment dear John!
If I remember right because of the curious shape of that part of the border you get from Windsor, Canada to Detroit, USA by travelling due south.
Sorry careless there I meant due North – it is south from the US city to the Canadian one.
