In Toronto this time

St. James Park, Toronto

CN Tower, Toronto Sunday finds us in Toronto, as we wind up a very long business trip. Had to get up early to catch a plane from Newark, so no jog this AM, but I did spend 90 minutes walking through Toronto, including the old town.

St. James Park is adjacent to St. James Cathedral, an Anglican Church of Canada congregation. I also walked past CN Tower on a loop that included Totonto’s old town.

This is my 2nd trip to Toronto, which is a very cosmopolitan city. Wikipedia sums it up thusly: “Toronto is a Canadian city located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario, and is the provincial capital of Ontario. Toronto is the 5th most populous municipality (population est. 2,613,900, July 1, 2005) in North America behind Mexico City, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

“Toronto is a global city, exerting significant regional and international influence, and is one of the most multicultural and ethnically diverse cities in the world. It is Canada’s financial centre and economic engine, as well as one of the country’s most important cultural, artistic, and health sciences centres. Toronto was named the world’s most livable city in 1994 by The Economist. It was displaced in 2005 by Vancouver, but is still ranked among the top ten. [1] In January 2005, Toronto was designated by the federal government as one of Canada’s cultural capitals.” Cool and overcast here, but pleasant walking weather
