Twenty things you should know before moving to Toronto


Brilliant place to live … just don’t whine about the cold

We ran across this great checklist of 20 things you should know before moving to Toronto. It comes from Notable.ca, the website catering to people much younger and more stylish than us old farts.

Some favourites …

  • You don’t “need” to know French
  • The cyclists will piss you right off
  • Yes, we have a cold winter; yes, sometimes it lasts kinda long; yes, it can be annoying; and yes, we sell warm jackets and waterproof boots and have lots of electricity so it’s really not a huge deal unless you’re just generally whiny about stuff

Check out the whole list here.
