As far as being a better person goes... I just try not to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and poor attitudes of toronto.
I always try to be polite, courteous, and out-going.
I think sometimes its the small things that count just as much as bigger things.. like holding doors for people, always saying thank-you, helping people in need, etc.
It's important to lead by example, and I hope that a person's good deads rub off on another.
