None. Detroit is a one time incident
It'll be more than one next time

Stockton is already corrupt and ravaged by crime, and went bankrupt long before Detroit. Why is it on the list of "who is next"?

I can't answer the question here, I don't know enough about these cities and others to guess.
What I can say is that I live in Toronto, the third largest city in North America and fourth largest if you include Mexico City, and while we have our problems and political infighting, you won't find abandoned areas and slums to the extent that you find them in some American cities. We certainly have less afluent neighbourhoods, but our city council and municipal government and employees work very hard to keep on top of areas where thing may be deteriorating or getting run down and we put money into improvements in those areas - in fact, we have designated areas that receive higher levels of funding for infrastructure and services based on the income levels of the people living there and the special needs of the communities.
You can't have a large, vibrant, living city without this kind of diligence in ensuring that no part of the community is allowed to go to waste. What happened in Detroit really is a sin, in my eyes. I can't understand a city allowing itself to fall so far. It will never happen here in Toronto because the people of Toronto will never let it happen.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
