I don’t know who comes up with these polls but, once agin, Toronto is ranked one of the best cities in the world. Not surprising, seeing the downtown area has been quite vibrant from the time it was known as York. I believe New York was named after Toronto due to the “New prefix”. I may be wrong though.

While The city has been described as beautiful, I believe the city is more masculine than feminine. Toronto has always been a town of industry, and the CN Tower accentuates its sexual disposition. I would describe Toronto as a handsome city – Montreal is “beautiful woman”. Toronto is a “guy”, let’s face it. Toronto has the CN Tower and Montreal has Celine Dion.
One thing that has troubled me about Toronto, for years, is the destruction of historic properties over the past 40 decades. Unlike New York and Chicago, Toronto has lost many of the architecture which once adorned its streets. This “progressive” attitude continues to this day and is pushing out people in the name of gentrification.
As mentioned in another post, Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam professes to be an advocate for the “common person” but her surgical elimination of older buildings results in the expulsion of those she supposedly protects. Toronto media fails to identify her campaign to drive out the poor and middle class.
It’s not all gloom and doom for Toronto but be prepared to fork out big money for housing, electricity and transportation. Toronto is the city they never finished building and it will continue to be a bloated small town with complete and utter mismanagement by city and provincial officials.
