SOME TORONTO SHORT STORIES – SEPTEMBER 28 TO OCTOBER 6/2016

TORONTO1The Globe and Mail reports that TORONTO has become a popular destination for American expat professionals. American KAREN GREVE-YOUNG – “It had all of my favourite ingredients of Boston, the San Francisco Bay Area, New York and London – all the great cities I’ve lived in – in a bizarrely accessible way for a city of its size.”

Ms. Greve-Young is among a growing number of Americans looking for international experience in Canada, and specifically TORONTO. Since 2010, according to a recent study by LinkedIn, the third most popular, long-term destination for US expatriates has been TORONTO, behind only London and Sydney.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave a big boost to TORONTO designer SENTALER when she wore the company’s signature ribbed sleeve alpaca coat in gull grey. The $1,195 jacket sold out immediately, with pre-orders up to February 2017. Kate’s earrings were by Canadian designer Shelly Silversmith.

BOJANA SENTALER, said she was “honoured” that Catherine chose to wear the coat while visiting the Yukon. And yes, they do ship to the UK.
