The Great Nice North

We’re talking about going to Toronto at the end of the month.

We’ve been twice before, but the last time was in 2009, so I’m sure the city has changed and there will be new things to see and do.

However, while I’m sure we wouldn’t sit in our hotel staring at CBC the entire time — not even if everything stops because people think a boy is floating in a balloon somewhere — the trip would be less about the stuff we do and more about being an easy, convenient getaway that won’t cost an arm and a leg.

I didn’t read every single answer to this question, but while there were references to hockey, maple syrup and everyone having pet moose, the most-common one I saw is that the people are nice.

That was also my answer.

I’m sure there are jerks in Canada, but if your country’s going to be known for something, it could do a lot worse than people being nice.

  1. Toronto has definitely changed since 2019, especially the area near the waterfront. I spent a few days there in August. It’s 60 miles away, but that was my first time downtown in two and a half years thanks to the pandemic. I do enjoy the city and there’s lots to see and do. Have fun if you do make the trip.
