To be quite honest, I haven't travelled anywhere outside of Ontario, but I've heard that the rest of Canada really despises Toronto and Torontonians. I understand there is the notion that we have a "big city complex" and think too highly of ourselves, but what are some other reasons for the disliking of Canada's metropolis?

BTW, check out this video about it.

Everyone else in Canada is bombarded with crap from TO, whether it is news, music, style and worst of all the Maple Laffs. Every first game on Saturday night is always a Laffs game...even if my Flames are playing Detroit. Since when did the Laffs represent what is best in Canadian Hockey?

There is a lot more to this country than TO and by extension Ontario, but all we ever hear about is TO this or TO that. Everyone in that city is selfish and doesnt give a rats ass about any other part of Canada, even the Newfies who have been there more than a year are corrupted!!!

But I am from Alberta and am extremely biased

Oh...spoken like a true denizen of Hogtown. :wink: Although, some of the wealthiest "wastelands" in Canada are in the western GTA - like Oakville 8)

In response to the video...2 points:

1. New York sucks too!

2. Toronto stands up for Toronto all the time. Why else would Western Canada see Pizza Pizza ads when we don't even have one?

I don't hate Toronto, but I do hate the bias that goes towards Toronto. That's the biggest reason I don't watch TSN (Toronto Sports Network) any longer. Calgary and Edmonton can be playing games that determine if they get inot the playoffs or not, but TSN shows highlights of the Raptors getting beat by the Lakers first...same with HNIC. I got really tired of watching almost all ways seeing Toronto vs whoever, followed by Vancouver vs. whoever.

Toronto is free to call itself Canada's best city...but then as number 1, it has little reason to complain about those who criticize it IMHO. If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen! :)
