Toronto, Canada.

Plans by Google for a smart city in Toronto are reportedly being met with resistance by the local community. 

Similar protests have taken place in locations around the world, such as in Berlin. In that city, palns for Google to open a large new office in the Kreuzberg neighbourhood were met with fierce resistance over gentrification fears and further rises to already skyrocketing rents.
