Perhaps you should think about locking your door. And getting an alarm. And a dog. A big dog like a German shepherd, not a little dog like a chihuahua. No one likes those yappy little *****.
I'm from Canada, and my parents are OBSESSED with locking our door, and we live on a mountain. But I do know people who leave their doors unlocked in more residential areas, because 'If it's locked, they'll break in anyway, at least we won't have broken windows!' Canadian logic.
I would still suggest locking your doors. While Canada might seem safe, the American in me is saying "more locks, big dogs, get guns, bars on your windows!!!!
I'm Canadian, and most people I know do not lock their doors during the day if they're home unless they live in a bad area. In a small town you could probably walk into any house you wanted to at 2pm. Edit: Also, I don't think I've EVER seen a non-commercial building in Canada that has bars on the windows.
