The largest city in Canada. It's known for it's combination of great neighbourhood vibe, cosmopolitan flare, and horribly atrocious downtown architecture. (Unlike most major cities, it experienced it's big economic boom in the sixties, go figure.) Otherwise a peach of a town, with great nightlife (and with boozecans up the wazoo, for you after hours folks), and wickedly georgeous people. So fuck off.

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.

Sorry kids, Toronto may be the biggest city you've ever been to, but it's metro area is still smaller than the following American cities:
New York
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Aw, not quite a dozen like the other guy said, but oh well.

Massive and poorly planned sprawl somewhere on the shores of lake Ontario. Dunno which dimwit decided to start a settlement in that flat wasteland (at least Calgary and Edmonton have their money-making oil fields).

Otherwise a pretty clean city, streets are well kept, freeway and transit system are efficient. Got some nice neat-looking suburbs, but if you're from someplace awesome like Vancouver, you'd think it's a dump cuz it's all brick...then again what other material will protect you from "freezing flesh" warnings common throughout half the year. Oh, every single house looks exactly the same; there's only one style throughout the entire metropolitan region. Entire golden horseshoe area is developed with highrises randomly popping up here and there; can never tell when you're leaving one city and entering the next.

Locals like to dress up fancy and act sophisticated, to remind themselves that they're the centre of the universe. Maybe it's the bad climate, or they just don't get out much, but compared to Vancouverites or Montrealers, Torontonians are an unattractive people, like that brown hairy female news anchor on CityTV they threw in just to prove how multicultural they are. City itself tries to imitate New York, and fails miserably.

Don't get me started on's embarrassing; downtown is built in the 60's so not their fault there...but in the suburbs like Scarborough and Mississauga, they have gay pointy Chryler Buildingesque spires on their residential towers, just to make it look architectural. Pathetic...nothing's original.

But if you just want to work and make some money for now and then move to Vancouver when you're rich, Toronto's the place to go. Housing is cheaper than Vancouver by a lot, and so is everything else. Essentially it's a nice city that provides you with everything you need, although not necessarily what you want.

Just don't forget your snowboots, gloves, shovels, matches and signal flares when you go out.

Since Vancouver has filled the "Best place in the universe" category, residents of this mediocre sprawling mess have only the size of "T dot" to fall back on, thus hailing it the centre of the universe, or of Canada at least, (since mid-size US cities like even Detroit are larger than Toronto). In a highschool, Toronto would be the fat ugly chick with inferiority complex and a rich daddy.
Torontonian: Yeah, TDot's the best man! Downtown Canada! What does your little town have to offer, huH??"

"Yeah, city is bigger than yours!!!"

After reading all the definitions for Toronto, I come to the conclusion that people from Toronto need to be told that they rock... I guess that when you live in a large city that has less clubs (less beautiful girls, less action, less everything) then a medium city (like MONTREAL), all you have to do is write down ridiculous definitions about how great your own city is.
By the way: Last Stanley Cup was in 1967, I wouldn't call that The greatest hockey franchise in the world losers... You can always come to Montreal and look at what a real hockey Dynasty looks like.
Loser A: Hey friends, it's saturday night and our safe city is sound asleep (as usual) let's go write definitions about our great city and how great it is here.
Loser B: Oh Great idea! Also, we should tell everyone about the great nightlife here because we can't compare it to nowhere else cuz we think the world revolves around us.
Loser C: It's not really our fault, we got so caught up trying to act like New York City that we forgot the girls and the fun in Vancouver and Montreal..

1 A city in Southern Ontario that's plauged with horribly cold winters and horribly hot muggy summers.
2 A polluted urban wasteland shrouded in smog most of the year.
3 The most American Canadian city other than Calgary.
4 A city who's claim to fame is...umm...hmmmm...oh yeah,the CNtower.
5 A city surrounded by beautiful majestic mountains,has tonnes of recreational activities(fishing,hiking,snowboarding ect)and a city with the most temperate climate in North America.Oh wait,that's Vancouver.
Hey man, how was big bad Toronto?
It sucked man,it was soooo hot and most of the time I thought I was in Cleavland.
Shitty,at least you can take a dip in the lake.
I couldn't,beach was closed and it smelled like urine.
Bummer,did you go up the CNtower?I here you can see Niagra Fallsfrom the observation deck.
Yeah,but it cost me 80bucks to go up,10 bucks for a hotdog and it was so smoggy that I couldn't even see the lake.On top of that,the city was hit with a brown out so I had to walk down the stairs, getting mugged by a ten year old on the way.
