“CITY OF 140+ LANGUAGES” – BBC TRAVEL GIVES A BOOST TO TORONTO TOURISM, JULY 31/2017

BBC Travel (with over 3,000,000 fans on Facebook) gives TORONTO a glowing writeup in an article by Lindsey Galloway. “Growing at a clip of more than 100,000 new residents a year, Canada’s largest city keeps getting larger. But the continued population boom hasn’t changed TORONTO’s character,” writes Ms. Galloway.

“A big part of TORONTO’s character comes through its many cultural neighbourhoods, which include Little India (6km east of the city centre), Little Italy (3km west), Portugal Village (3km south-west), Greektown (8km north-east), and Chinatown (2km east), the largest outside San Francisco.

“While residents agree that the city is expensive compared to the rest of Canada, they also say it’s still much more affordable than other big global cities. The 2017 Cost of Living Index by the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked TORONTO at 86 of 133 cities, well behind New York, London and even Mexico City.”
