Toronto: A Brief To-Do – Pt 1

Toronto, Ontario Canada has been in the limelight of late, sometimes in a postitive light other times in a not so positive light.  We pride ourself to be the birthplace of the award winning television series FLASHPOINT as well as THE LISTENER and bits of THIRTEEN. We are the backdrop for many hollywood movies, too many to count for Toronto is such a vast place. According to the Toronto website we have 2.7 Million people living here.  Over the past few years the landscape and skyscape of Toronto has changed vastly from skyscrapers rising to the sky to buildings being torn down. From the closure of Sam the Record Man to the closure of the HMV at Yong and Dundas. As sad as it was to see the places go, Yonge and Dundas has been hailed as the Time Squre of Canada.

How to get Around – Quite easy. Toronto has an amazing network of public transportation. From theunderground trains (which are being replaced with brand new trains), to the RT above ground
