If the mayor of Toronto can hold on to a secret THAT big for so long, then it should come as no surprise that the rest of the city has a few whoppers of its own. Here are 11 hush-hush Toronto facts you probably didn't know about...
1. There’s a cemetery buried UNDER Yorkville
The poshest of posh Toronto ‘hoods has a unique past that doesn’t quite fit with its current incarnation -- it was actually Toronto's first public non-denominational cemetery, known as the Potter's Field. Yorkville was built on top of it.
2. Yorkville was also a hippie hangout
Before it was the epicenter of clothes and accessories you can’t afford, Yorkville was overrun with hippies. So much so that it was known as the “Canadian capital of the hippie movement.” Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and other famous Canuck musicians and artists hung out here in the many coffee shops and bars that have since been replaced with names like Louis Vuitton and Gucci.
