Now little about your lovely city Barrie,Ontario.

This information is provided by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrie

Barrie is a city located on Kempenfelt Bay, an arm of Lake Simcoe, in the central portion of southern Ontario, Canada. Although geographically near the centre of Simcoe County, the municipality is politically separate. Barrie's location between Toronto and resort areas to the north, popularly known as cottage country, result in the city being influenced by the metropolis to the south. The city is located in the northern portion of the Greater Golden Horseshoe, the most densely populated area of Canada.As of 2006, the city's population was 128,430 residents,making it the 35th largest city in Canada.Data released from the 2006 census indicates that the Barrie metropolitan area, with 177,061 residents, is the 21st largest, and one of the fastest growing Census Metropolitan Areas in the country.

At its inception, Barrie was a small group of houses and warehouses at the foot of the Nine Mile Portage from Kempenfelt Bay to Fort Willow. The city was named in 1833 after Sir Robert Barrie, who was in charge of the naval forces in Canada and frequently had to portage from Lake Simcoe to Georgian Bay through the city. The Underground Railroad in the mid-19th century allowed many American slaves to enter Barrie. This contributed to the development (and name) of nearby Shanty Bay. During World War II the Royal Canadian Navy named a Flower class corvette HMCS Barrie. On 27 September 1977, in dense fog, a small plane hit the 68 meter tall CKVR Television Tower, knocking CHAY FM and CKVR-TV off the air. All passengers on the aircraft were killed, and the tower was destroyed. A new 304 metre tower was erected and operational within a year. On 31 May 1985, an F4 tornado struck Barrie. It was one of the most violent and deadliest tornadoes in Canadian history. On 12 13 June 1987, a sculpture called Spirit Catcher by Ron Baird was moved to Barrie from Vancouver, British Columbia, where it had been exhibited as part of Expo '86.

The sculpture was erected permanently at the foot of Maple Avenue on the shore of Kempenfelt Bay. However, with the re-development along the waterfront/Lakeshore Drive, the city is considering moving the Spirit Catcher to the gravel outcropping at the foot of Bayfield Street. In January 2004, Barrie made international news when its city police raided the former Molson brewery, and found Canada's largest illegal cannabis grow operation. Barrie's Park Place (formerly Molson Park) was chosen to host Live 8 Canada on 2 July 2005.The success of the concert contributed to the resistance to a plan to convert the concert area to a commercial district. However, the stage, buildings and many of the trees on site have been destroyed since construction of the Park Place commercial district has begun. An explosion in the Royal Thai restaurant, housed in the landmark Wellington Hotel, at the historic Five Points intersection in Barrie's downtown core occurred at 11:20 PM on 6 December 2007. The fire quickly spread to several neighbouring buildings. Firefighters battled the blaze well into the following morning, requiring assistance from other Simcoe County fire services. Officials estimate the damages to be in the millions. The Wellington Hotel building collapsed. It was over one hundred years old.On 17 February 2008, two people were charged in connection with the fire, after the Ontario Fire Marshal's office concluded the explosion and fire were the result of arson. Barrie is located in the central portion of Southern Ontario, known as Central Ontario, within the Greater Golden Horseshoe urban agglomeration.

It is accessible via Highways 26, 400, 11 and has convenient access to Highway 401, the Highway 407 Express Toll Route and to neighbouring Toronto. Pearson International Airport in Toronto is less than a one hour drive from Barrie via Highway 400, a six lane highway that runs directly through Barrie. Barrie's historic downtown area is situated in a distinct curved or wrapped valley, surrounding the western edge of Kempenfelt Bay. Terrain is generally flat near the city's centre. Moving up the valley slopes toward the city's north and south ends, the terrain can be rather steep in areas. Over the last few decades, the city has expanded its urban area beyond the confines of the valley, particularly to the south and south-east, into the rural town of Innisfil. The Province of Ontario has enacted legislation that will enable Barrie to annex 2,293 acres (9.28 km2) from Innisfil as of January 1, 2010.The land in question extends south beyond 10th Line west of the 10th Sideroad, and as far south as Lockhart Road on the east side of the 10th Sideroad.Innisfil retains the community of Stroud, but the community of St. Pauls will shift to Barrie. The city does not have any major rivers within its limits, but does have numerous creeks and streams, most of which empty into Kempenfelt Bay.
