it would actually be do the lack of timber, so the search for resources drove them here, including gold and land. the people that followed were mostly interested in freedom from a ruler and freedom of religion.
the gangs and crime that developed was directly do to over population.

then you should know stats can vary by the data used and how it is manipulated
the stats used here does not consider population density or resources available, and these two factors lead to a higher crime rate.
the population density of New York city is nearly 3 times that of toronto, this would explain why I said fewer resources equals more crime.
here is something from good old Canada for you
“There has been an increase in concentration of violence taking place among young males under 30 years of age,” says Scot Wortley, an associate professor at the University of Toronto’s Centre of Criminology. “Many of the young male victims of homicide are from our poorest and most socially disadvantaged communities.”
Wortley said studies show Toronto’s middle-class communities have been shrinking and “our poor communities are not only growing but are becoming increasingly geographically and socially isolated — in other words, more like American ghettoes.”
In the U.S., these communities have been associated with high rates of crime and violence and, if the trend continues, a similar increase can be expected in Canada, he said.
like I said, too many people, not enough resources

Honestly, I think the grass is always greener somewhere else, until you get there. I've driven down the west coast of the US a few times and no matter where I go the people are friendly, the weather is great and the chocolate bar variety is AMAZING. And after living in BC for 30-odd years, all I wanna do lately is chuck it all and move to Newfoundland...........there are places in Vancouver you wouldn't want to get caught alone at night in, believe me...........

Canada is currently at my #2 destination if I ever decide that this country is beyond saving (which, actually during the past few months, I think it's on the right path).
Anyways, I would definitely go to UK first.
Can't beat fish and chips, soccer for 12 months of the year, and that bloody accent!Science doesn't know everything.....Religion doesn't know anything.
