"Toronto the Good is a Myth. Our city is full of racism, sexism & ignorance bread by politicians who'll say/do anything to get a vote"
Ain't that the truth. We popped our cherry on the boat over and looked back with no regrets.
Agree and disagree.
Toronto the Good as a pure thing is obviously a myth.
Toronto as a place known world-wide for imperfect but pretty-good fairness and tolerance is a real thing. A lot of people have got off boats and planes in Canada, felt free for the first time ever, celebrated that, and helped newer newcomers. This is why the whole Ford Nation thing provokes such bitterness and despair. There was and still is good reason to hope for much better.
