Toronto is an awesome town, and with that awesomeness comes a natural hazard: people are going to come visit you. And when they do, aside from explaining away the various television remotes, the complexities of your shower controls, and literally everything about Rob Ford, there are a few things about this city they’ll need to know. Here’s a primer:
1. Don’t call it the T-Dot
Unless you live inside a 1990s Canadian rap video, this is not a thing that people say. Also, the second 't’ is silent. Say it with me, Tor-ron-oh.
2. Drake is the best musician in the world
And don’t even question it.
3. There are parks
Beyond the steel and concrete, we have some green space, too. Check out High Park, Trinity Bellwoods, and Christie Pits: there are trees and grass and lots of public drinking, just keep it hidden, since it’s illegal.
