Toronto Thinks People Are Actually Giving It A Lot Of Thought

Where the crack is always ice-cold“Canada’s largest city, where I grew up, is a sprawling, crowded, diverse, fabulously wealthy and increasingly exciting place. It’s Canada’s New York City (the nation’s finance capital), San Francisco (technology) and Los Angeles (entertainment) put together, and is by almost every measure a world-class city. There’s only one thing holding it back: An adolescent’s obsession over what other people think of it.”
Did you know that people who live in Toronto are called Torontonians? I mean, I guess it makes sense, but I never really spent any time considering the nomenclature, because, you know, it’s Toronto. It may be Canada’s New York City, Canada’s San Francisco and Canada’s Los Angeles put together, but all three of those things have “Canada” in front of them, so AUTOMATIC ZZZZZZZ. Anyway, their mayor has been in the news lately because of something about crack-smoking on video, it happens, life will move forward as it always does and pretty soon we will forget all about Toronto once again, but in this brief moment while they have even a small sliver of spotlight, I would like to make this suggestion: From now on they should call themselves Torontulas. I mean, that sounds pretty badass, right?
