Toronto is now grown-up enough to be rife with contradictions and its contradictions are making it interesting. Toronto’s growth has been extravagant. If you approach from the water, almost every building you see will have been constructed in the past two decades. The city has been booming for so long and so consistently that few can remember what Toronto was like when it wasn’t booming. There were 13 skyscrapers in 2005 there are now close to 50, with 130 more under construction. The greater Toronto area is expected to swell by 2.8 million to reach almost 9.5 million by 2041, it’s good or bad? we never know but I’m so lucky to be here even wanting a life in a quieter place.
