Remember, my three friends, frolicking and painting Europe red? One day while discussing about the various countries and countrymen and their cultures, one of us (Let’s call her U) mentioned that irrespective of how people look, you can almost always tell a Canadian.
The Canadian (We will call her C) in the group wanted to know how. She could speak English and French extremely well, obviously it was not her accent? U said jokingly that all Canadian tourist and travelers would have the red maple leaf displayed somewhere on their self!
We all laughed heartily and C, who hails from Ontario, talked about her province and the nation and the city of Toronto where she lives and how Ontario is a prime tourist destination.
To begin with, the political capital Ottawa and the financial capital Toronto is situated here. It is also the most populous. Ask any Canadian where he/she lives. Chances are, one fourth of them would respond Toronto.
Can you believe that city of Toronto and Greater Toronto Area account for around 25% of Canada’s Population? I was immediately reminded of Australia where 20% of population lived in Sydney and its surrounding areas. I guess some would say the similarity ends there. 🙂
As per C, Ontario is an all-year round place, with Skiing, Snow boarding and hunting during winters and other recreational activities such as water sports, hiking in the wilderness in summer and of course the usual dose of History, monuments, modern architectures and tall towers. E.g. The CN Tower in Toronto held the record of being the tallest free standing structure for several years.
