I think Toronto classifies as world class, it just happens to be full of shitheads.

How cute: a whole thread of Canadians talking to other Canadians about Canadians, like they're relevant or something.

Because being one of the safest, most economically powerful metropolis on the face of the earth with an extremely diverse population wouldn't classify as world class in your mind?

You are clueless.

Toronto is classified as an Alpha(3rd Tier) world class city. On the same level as Beijing, LA, Madrid, Moscow,etc...

Take that for whatever you feel it's worth. Having spent much of my time downtown and in the suburbs, I don't feel either end is more polite. Off the boat Chinese people down town won't say thank you or apologize if they bump into you....South Asian people straight off the boat in Mississauga and so on won't say thank you or apologize either. For me, at least the Chinese people will act like nothing happened and keep on walking whereas I always find I open doors (ie. walking into the bank) for Indian people (usually a mother and a young adult son) and they will give me this awkward look, drop their eyes and walk by. Asshole and awkward as ****. lol

Other than that, I find Toronto to be very pleasant (been to many cities and it doesn't stand out as worse than any, but definitely better than some). People are always willing to help if needed and are polite. Maybe I'm living in a parallel universe...I dunno.

I'm sorry if my positive outlook offends you. lol

Have to agree with this. As someone who has spent about 2 monthes total in toronto and lived in NYC, I gota say Toronto is nowhere near the city NYC is.

You are clueless.

3rd Tier maybe, but "world class" means the city is at the top for tourism, arts, music, economy, safety, transportation, education etc.

Comparing Toronto to NYC, Paris, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, etc is just ignorant. If you truly believe Toronto is on par with these cities, you need to go out and see the world.

I don't see why you're so offended by Toronto not being a world class city. I live in Toronto & I'm not afraid to admit that we're not.

I agree that Toronto is probably one of the safest places to raise a family, but just because the city is safe, doesn't mean it's "world class".
