The largest city in Canada. Provincial capital and national centre of arts, business, financial, and media sectors.

Inspires many negative definitions on the website urbandictionary.com. Some have suggested that this proliferation may result from Torontonians having better things to do in their city than writing diatribes about other cities. Residents of these other cities are afforded more solitude and idle time from a lack of nearby entertainment.

Most residents of Toronto proper and visitors agree that it is a city that is coming into its own as worldwide destination. Proudly boasts the least crime of all major cities in Canada and a storied hockey team that will hopefully win the Stanley Cup again before the next ice age.

The largest city in Canada, that's overrated. People who have never been there think it's great, but when they go they realize it's a shithole. The leafs suck as well.
Aw shit! I thought Toronto was going to be cool. Its just a shithole

Polluted, overpopulated, crime ridden, disgusting excuse of a city. If you enjoy stress, sky high rent, mean ugly people, big women, getting shot at while shopping, breathing problems, allergies and shortening your life significantly then feel free to move to this shithole.
I went to Toronto, i love Alberta even more now.

Toronto (or Turanna, as its inhabitants call it) is a decent city with mainly decent friendly people, that has some residents who think it is better than it is, even believing it to be an amazing cosmopolitan experience and a world class city; these Torontonians obviously haven't traveled much.

Many Canadians from outside southern Ontario hate the city because its "too American" or because we have too much pollution and crime, although for a city our size the crime actually isn't too bad, although I will agree there is too much air pollution during the summer. And while some Torontonians have a bloated ego about their city, overall we are still decent folk, despite what some other Canadians like to tell themselves about us.

Our sports teams suck, but Toronto is the largest concentration of hockey lovers in the world, even though the home team is shit.

The main problem with the city is the endless sprawl, and some parts are actually kind of ugly, and the city could use some beautification. If these problems, along with transportation and pollution, are cleaned up in the next 20 years, as well as reduced housing costs, Toronto could be a really cool city. Theres lots to do and see in Toronto, the people are friendly, and its my beloved home.

I can't argue that Toronto is a large city with a lot of venues and establishments to offer. I don't contest the fact that the Toronto Stock Exchange is world class and that the city has plently of world class art and theater attractions. Hell it even has a wannabe times square outside of the Eaton shopping mall.

Having said that, Toronto is different from a World Class city and maybe my equation will help you to see how.

World Class City like New York or London - having a subway out to the airport - having any sense of what nice architecture is like Paris or Boston - having a public Lakefront like Chicago - ever having the Olympics - having beautiful women all over the place like Los Angeles or Montreal - sports franchises that can keep up with American teams + an aids infested gay community like San Francisco + tonnes of homeless people like New Dehli + heroin junkies and worthless runaways of New York City + the ego of Nazi Germany + the scummy air of Mexico City + Violent Jamaicans like in Kingston + the terrorist sleeper cells like Afghanasthan = Toronto

Woah thats a lot of math but I checked in the back of the text book and this is all true.

I live in Northern Ohio and I have been to just about every major in North America and every time I go to Toronto for a ball game or something, I look at the people and think to my self, "I am so proud that I am not one of them".
Torontonian with head up his ass: Hey ya hoser. The Women of Toronto are the hottest in the world eh!

Person who goes to an American University: Mmm. Well if you like hippies, suicidal runaways, annorexic/starving junkies, women that are out of shape, and otherwise good looking women with fucked up ethnic noses, than ya. I'd say you struck gold.

Announcer at Sky Dome: Get on your feet Blue Jay fans and show some civic pride. We are Toronto. We are world class. Lets show the world what were made of.

Cleveland Indians fan: Well thats nice. I don't remember hearing how top notch Ney York City was at Yankee Stadium. I guess New York isn't as good as Toronto.

How the hell does some guy get off defending our city by comparing it to Detroit??? And no, our subways are not clean, they look like crappy versions of the ones in NYC, but filled with angry persian women and brown kids trying to act black. I see people everywhere pretending to be sophisticated like them New Yorkers, which may be tolerable if they didn't look so constipated and uptight. The government here is just as unoriginal.. while Portland and San Fran are already densifying their metros like Vancouver, the arrogant gas-bags in city council are busy building a big ugly sprawl the size of New York with less than 1/4 of the population. Such backwards mindset over here; I'd move to Vancouver in an instant if a house there didn't cost $750,000.
We need some original people here to help Toronto out.

New York
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Miami
Chicago
Detroit
Boston
Philadelphia
Washington
Houston
Dallas
Aw, not quite a dozen like the other guy said, but oh well.
Torontonians consist of metrosexuals and fat brown chicks.
