Toronto, #13

Well, we went from #1 for living standards, to #4, and now #13. Vancouver, Vienna, and Melbourne had a 3-way tie for first place. With New York city falling to 51st place (I think). The article said that a lot of our cities rating has to do with the decrease in tourism, our de-generating roadways, and the way that our citizens view our city.

I guess 13th isn't all that bad.

Now if the Fiberals would deliver on that promise of a share of the gas tax to cities, then Toronto might be able to move back up that list.

Would that be wearing rose-coloured glasses with their heads firmly shoved up their asses?

Torontonians are almost as blindly "rah rah rah" for Toronto as Americans are for the states.

If that was true Barbara Hall would be our new/old mayor

I think they were talking about all the people who complain about Torontonians yet live in Toronto.

It's like posting on TRIBE but then saying that all TRIBERS are retards.

It's so faux-cool to slag the city you live in. Especially if you moved here from a shitty little town with nothing to offer but date-rapes behind the Sip'n'Go.

I was being serious.

...but the list was compiled by another publication.

But it's also retarded to be the city's unofficial cheerleader.

And I love how people say "Well, if it's so bad, why do you live here?" as if picking up and moving is a 30-second decision. :rolleyes: Maybe it is if you have no family or friends and work at Wendy's, but not if you have anything resembling a life.

don't those list-makers know that conan o'brien and the rolling stones like us?

i mean, it only cost $2 million to make them come visit.

so, like, seriously, what the fuck?

usually i would say that
but i've been hearing a LOT of complaints about the city going down hill - messier, dirtier, ttc service complaints etc. we're proud of the city for a lot of reasons but we're down about it these days overall - that's my impression

Echoing what BBB said.

Toronto sucks is the equivalent of Trance Sucks. All the slaggers secretly like it.

I'll admit though, last summer I was getting irritated with TO. I then spent some time in Peterborough, and ran back to Toronto. We have it very, very good here.

I love this city and am going to very sad to leave. I never thought it would be possible to love living in an urban center this much. I hope I get offered a job here when I am older.

13th is good enough for me.

Why is it retarded if you actually have a genuine connection to the city you live in? Sure, there's crap I don't like about Toronto and some of the individuals within, but I think it's a great place to live and would not hesitate to say so.

Yes, if you feel the opposite then by all means express yourself, but one then begins to question: why live somewhere you don't like? I understand it's not as easy as picking up and leaving in the night, but it's not impossible either. Find somewhere to live that you might enjoy.

It's the new version of this poll (2002 listed, as I can't find the link to this years)

Top cities for UK Expatriates

Toronto was #13 because of the garbage strike, smelly streets, shitty road conditions, poor city maintenance, and other nasty things we Torontonians take for granted.

A fair thing to say about the state of Toronto would be what I swore to myself a long time ago; I want to live as close to the city as possible without actually living in it. Toronto (for me) is an absolutely fantastic city for everything but living in.

There's a difference between out and out slaggin the city--being a Toronto hater---and having contructive criticism to offer as a citizen.

Sure it's not so easy to pick up and move, but it's not that hard either: if you really hate the city (enough to bitch about it so much that those of us voluntarily living here are sick of you) then you ought to be able to back up your hatred with a plan you have in action with the eventual result of moving away. Otherwise you're exercising your chin.
