Canada's largest city and Ontario's provincial capital, located right on Lake Ontario. Judging by the other definitions, there are very divided opinions about it. As someone who has lived here all their life, I can honestly say that, while it certainly has its bad points, it has its good points as well.

Bad points: - Often dirty and polluted

- Hot, smoggy Summers and sometimes snowless Winters

- A pretty mediocre subway system

- Some very ugly architecture

- Has an idiot for a mayor (see Rob Ford)

- Parts of the lakefront are gross and smelly

Good points: - Multicultural

- A pretty good art, theatre and film scene

- Some very nice Victorian-style architecture downtown

- Several great restaurants and stores

- Many parks and gardens

- Parts of the lakefront are beautiful and pristine (eg. Scarborough Bluffs)

- Some very nice nature walks, hikes and canoeing in and around the city
Love it or hate it, Toronto has its pros and cons.

A large city in Canada which is really cold in the winter and really humid and sweaty in the summer. It made a bid for the olympics several times, but was denied because it is such an embarrassment to the rest of the country. Due to the fact that Vancouver won it's bid for the Olympics and also due to yet another dismal season by the Maple Leafs, Toronto is extremely jealous of Vancouver and says nothing but negative things about this beautiful city in it's media. We understand its playoff time, so what else does Toronto really have to talk about. But come on. This is getting old and sad. Worry about your crappy teams and ugly city and leave your superiors alone.

The largest city in Canada, and the capital of Ontario province. Although not the national capital, it is the focus of Canada's finance, fashion and transport industries. Located by Lake Ontario, immediately east of the huge suburb of Missisauga. It is home to one of the world's most respected universities (UofT), Canada's largest airport (YYZ) and has one of the world's most iconic gay communities.

Toronto is incredibly diverse, with half the population being born outside Canada. This prompted the development of many ethnic neighborhoods such as Little Italy, Greektown-Danforth, Koreatown, Ronacesvalles-Little Warsaw, the Portugese village and Little India. Toronto also has the affluent areas of Yorkville/Rosedale, the historic Cabbagetown and Distillery districts, the youthful Beaches, Kensington & Annex areas, as well as 4 Chinatowns.

The city has short, intensely hot summers and long, harsh winters, although they are well adapted to this, and life functions normally all year. Home to many parks, as well as the green and tranquil Toronto Islands, 10 minutes from Downtown. Over the next 10 years, the Waterfront/Don Lands area will undergo dramatic revitalization, including replacing the derelict port with a naturalized park at the mouth of the Don river.
Toronto will host the 2015 Pan-American games, and is planning to bid for the 2020 Olympic games.
