    They want to be a global city, its a "Canadian inferiority complex" kinda like how they hate the Argonauts from the CFL and wish they had an NFL team, where Saskatchewan and Winnipeg have a grand old time at the games

    it's kind of ironic that toronto seems to have a inferiority complex as a city on a global scale but a superiority complex to other Canadian cities.

    Cananda is a small country.
    Large only in Landmass.
    Toronto IS huge comapred to the rest of Canadian cities, and rather small compared to some of the larger international Metropolitans.

    So yeah, not really a thing one way or another, just is

    I never understood this superiority complex thing. Only people outside Toronto think that. Not us

    It's more just the canadian media, politics etc. Vancouver included the rest of the country gets sick of hearing about these 2 citys and how everything evolves around them. example "Snow storm put Toronto in choas". Sounds like a regular tuesday for the rest of the country. People in winnipeg experincing artic temperture are like big whoop lets hear some real national news not the first 10 minute block about some snow in T.O

    Lol well we dont even like that. News is news they blow everything out of proportion. Its winter. It snows. Big deal ya. Its going up to a balmy 9 on sunday Ive heard it 100 times already this week on the radio. Itll probably go up to 6. A warm winter day ya it happens. Sounds like you watch CTV News which is shit its for old people either way southern ontario probably represents 25% of those viewers so itll be slanted a bit.

    There is a certain segment of Toronto that suffers overwhelming insecurity masquerading as an insufferable preening self-importance. It's prevalent among a good segment of what I'd call the 'professional class' and, among that class, no one was worse than the sports media. Think guys like Cathal Kelly and Dave Feschuk.

    I liked my time in Toronto (even though the financial district downtown inexplicably always smells like urine) but it does sit in a bit of a weird spot where it offers all of the inconveniences of a big city but not all of the benefits of a great city (London, NYC, Singapore, Hong Kong, Moscow, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney).
