Pittsburgh’s biggest newspaper is jealous of our diversity
A lengthy feature in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette lauds Toronto for being welcoming to immigrants—at least, compared to Pittsburgh, where foreign-born residents apparently account for just four per cent of the population. (In Toronto, as we know, it’s a much different story.) As evidence of Toronto’s multiculturalism, the article furnishes Pittsburghers with interviews with experts like councillor Joe Mihevc. Also cited: the Eaton Centre’s Urban Eatery, where the writer interprets the wide array of ethnic cuisine as an indicator of our tolerance. Maybe better mall food is the key to getting U.S. legislators to loosen up their country’s immigration policies. Alert the White House.
