"Low crime rate"? Please look up factual statistics. According to the FBI, Canon City has almost 800 violent crimes per 100,000 residents -- where 450 is the national average and 700 is considered high. Even more insulting is the fact that Canon City only had 200 violent crimes per 100,000 residents in 2003. You heard that right -- crime in Canon City has QUADRUPLED in just 3 years!!! Canon City is a terrible place to live and raise a family, with its high crime (especially for such a small town), bad public schools, and corruption. If you want a good place to live and raise a family, check out Colorado Springs, 50 miles northeast. (Interestingly, in your review for that city, you claim that it has a "high crime rate", when in fact, it has a MUCH lower crime rate than Canon City.) But whatever you do, avoid Canon City at all costs, and don't say I didn't warn you!
