    The economy is hindered by the low oil prices. It is a low socio-economic area; one of the best places to live if on welfare. Drugs, alcohol and suicides are problems among the youth in the community. The lake is now at 90% capacity and draws people to the area. Local people are very friendly.

    Although people feel safe in this area, some are concerned about individuals who seem to get away with crime, especially with regards to drugs. The integrity of the police force is questionable at times.

    It is a small town, quite for raising your kids.
