In my experience, Toronto doesn't have that much to offer. Pure corporate cold soulless expressway traffic too visibly ethnic clubs close at 2 bahhh....much prefer Montreal and Vancouver as far as Canadian cities go.

But I really did wish for you guys to open your Casino so I could come by and take all your money at the poker tables. Those electronic tables they have at Woodbine just don't cut it

Toronto has everything needed to be a world class city. It's an economic center, an entertainment center, major sports franchises, and a dense population. I've gone there twice for business and I had a great time. Decent clubs, decent restaurants, culturally diverse.

The one issue I have with Toronto is that it lacks an identity. There is not a singular thing I can think of that makes this city unique. Not a destination city type of reputation. Every world class city has some sort of unique reputation it holds with pride and the city caters to.

Even the Torontonians (I've heard the locals call themselves that) seem to lack an identiy. If you check out the eastern seaboard you can tell who's from where. You can seperate someone from Philly to Jersey, New York, Boston, Pittsburgh, heck, even from Miami, Chicago, LA......People have a different flavor about them. My guess would be Torotonians try to replicate New Yorkers, but a poor man's version. For the comment of not being polite which the OP started, that where the attitude may stem from. But all in all I find the overall attitude much more pleasant. Like I said, come to Philly and you'll find out what rude is.

I walk around in Toronto sometimes and feel like I'm in Hong Kong. I go to casinos and I'm the visible minority. For me it lessens how much I personally value that city. Maybe that sounds racist, but I don't really care

We do try to replicate NYC, and I don't necessarily understand why. With that said.... when it's warm there is no place I would rather be. This weekend had so much energy, everywhere you looked things were popping off. For the next four to five months I will be in Heaven.

macmac has a point. When some people of one race is a majority part of a district, they tend to bring some of their own standards up and sometimes over the neutral Canadian ones. Some are acceptable, some are barely.

No one in Toronto wants someone like you here anyway. Crazy how perfect that worked out.
