In the Travel Section of the New York Times, August 25/2019 – “Like the largest city in the United States, TORONTO, Canada’s largest, offers a wealth of cultural and culinary attractions. Just over half of the city’s population, 51%, is foreign-born (with) 231 nationalities, a source of great culinary diversity.”“The prices pale in comparison to the New Yorks, San Franciscos and Chicagos of the world, but the value is there,” said Franco Stalteri, who, since 2009, has hosted pop-up dinners with globally renowned chefs. “We benefit from a vast multiculturalism I’ve never seen anywhere else.”Also mentioned – the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Power Plant, Airbnb, October’s international art fair, and other attractions.Columnist ELAINE GLUSAC writes “American travelers can stretch their budgets wherever the US dollar is strong. One place is, conveniently, our northern neighbour.” That’s us!
