Reasons to Love Toronto 2012

Reasons to Love Toronto 2012

We’ll look back at 2012 as the year Toronto became the most envied city in the world. If our banks and politicians weren’t paragons of dullness, we wouldn’t have sidestepped the economic turmoil so elegantly and, lo and behold, emerged with rows of new condos and five-star hotels, a seemingly impenetrable housing market (touch wood) and so many great places to eat. We’re worshipped by the suits at Davos and we’re the place where professionals dream of being transferred. That giddy feeling in the air is the euphoria of great expectations. We’d better get used to it.
