Reasons to Love Toronto 2013: Our fifth annual mash note to the city

Reasons to Love Toronto 2013

When the news came that Toronto had breezed past Chicago in population count, adding another 38,000 people in a single year and becoming the fourth-largest city in North America, we weren’t surprised—the evidence was all around. The time when Toronto was solely distinguished by its citizens’ polite reserve and, paradoxically, the show-offy height of its telecommunications tower, is ancient history. We still have the CN Tower, but now it’s the pinnacle of a busy metropolis that’s given birth to a Toronto sound, a Toronto look, a Toronto cuisine, a Toronto brand of erotic literature and a Toronto team with a real shot at the World Series. Our fifth annual love letter to Toronto, are ample proof of a city ascendant.

Reasons to Love Toronto 2013

  • Ben Stewart

    $2.5 million is not a “high score” in the world of high-tech. Sorry.

  • Simon Fenwitch

    Re: mid-rise condo building near Yonge and Lawrence – That is truly one of the ugliest designs I have seen, and certainly does not fit on that residential part of Yonge Street

  • WP.

    You forgot to add ‘Because we have Rob Ford as our mayor’, the greatest mayor we have ever had.

  • Mert Ozcan

    The point here is not to illustrate a competition with high-tech’s giants, but to demonstrate the energetic, fresh upcoming era of new digital startups with lots of potential, for both Toronto and Canada.. And Capybara’s game is absolutely a hit on the appstore anyway..

  • munchiehome munchie

    Because we love Toronto as our home

  • El Afrit Vaillant

    I like Toronto , but I’ve never been there and I would like going it because it inspires me .

  • Art Allen

    Even a list of reasons to love Toronto has to be politicized. Who thinks of Kathleen Wynne when thinking about Toronto….Only Toronto Life Magazine. (Who thinks of Kathleen Wynne period).
