#Clark Kent on Aug 29, 2015 :
The socialist aspect isn't much of an exaggeration.

Going around most of the city you'll be surprised how run down it is getting.
#The Truth on Aug 29, 2015 :
What makes Toronto a horrible city is that the feminist movement has created a politically correct socialist city where all men are viewed as potential criminals and all women of Toronto are viewed as cupcakes who do no wrong.
#Matthew Reynolds on Aug 27, 2015 :
Hell must be more hospitable than Toronto with their insane pedophile supporting feminists who walk naked and then cry sexual harassment when someone looks at her.
#Clark Kent on Aug 27, 2015 :
Another thing that's annoying about Toronto is that it is so unusual to meet a normal pretty girl that you get choked up when you actually encounter one.

Just now a well put-together brunette knocked on the door to ask if my parents' house needs renovations.

I answered her questions and said goodbye but am now kicking myself for not pushing the interaction and trying to get her number. In the moment I acknowledged how attractive she was but I was too surprised to be having a conversation with a normal attractive woman. By normal attractive woman I mean no tattoos, pretty face and not over/underweight, shoulder length hair, normal conversation skills, not revealing all of her body, relaxed demeanor, normal vocabulary, etc. I live downtown when I'm not visiting my parents and too rarely do I encounter a normal looking girl to have a normal conversation with. I know that sounds ridiculous.

It's on me to improve my game but it's just so rare to have a normal interaction with an attractive woman in this city that when I do I get star-struck and confused.
#TOwomenSuck on Aug 27, 2015 :
I currently live in Toronto and also I’ve been around other cities, so as a gentleman who experienced social interaction in Montreal, NYC, Seattle, Austin, Mediterranean countries, or even Asian/German stereotypes; Shanghai and Berlin, I definitely call Toronto as the most awkward city in terms of social life and unfortunately typical Torontonians are socially retarded in general; specially girls who they cannot even handle a Hi during the day, can’t carry on a meaningful conversation or barely accept an approach at the night venues and totally ignore strangers with their huge attitude and rudeness while they’re shameless about it, they also have such a hard time to make new friends or expand their petty social circle. Some of the women who work around children behave very predatory towards kids.

In conclusion, I totally agree with every single point that is mentioned in this thread which is %100 truth about social life in Fucktard city of Toronto! Generally speaking, Toronto girls are dumb as hell. One more time it’s been proved; Canadian Sucks, American Rocks!
#David77 on Aug 27, 2015 :
Some of the comments are a little over the top, but I agree that it is harder to meet women in Toronto than in most other places.

But what I really want to say that the idea that all you have to do to do well with women here is treat them like human beings and not like sexual object. This is bullshit.

What you really need to do is to know people, and so meet women through other people. But that can be hard for people who move here.

Otherwise there is online, but I hear that if you're not white you will have a hard time online.

Just my two cents.
#Dan on Aug 25, 2015 :
Canadians are such a bunch of repressed racists & perverts. If you hate non-whites so much then why let them in your sh*thole? Good news is most don't stick around for long so enjoy your boring freezer.
#Gas Prices on Aug 24, 2015 :
Advice for you guys...don't move to Toronto. The only ones getting the good jobs are the feminists who dress and behave like slutty whores in the workplace. Teachers want to dress like slutty whores in the classroom too. Toronto is not an ideal city to raise your children. Your female teacher might molest them and you wouldn't know until they turn into adults and remember their abuse
#Susan on Aug 23, 2015 :
Is this a forum where losers who can't get laid vent their frustrations? Toronto is the greatest city in the world. if you can't get laid here, you can't get laid anywhere you misogynist. If you treat women like human beings and not treat her as a sexual object when she wears a thong bikini, shall you succeed in life.
#D on Aug 23, 2015 :
Wow! I have been reading some nasty comments...raist comments and insults to women. For those guys throwing insults at women,the obvious things is that you are losers, sexually frastrated that you are so unlucky with women. With your attitude and personality,of course no woman will date you not because you may not have the best jobs,cars,condos or not wearing the best clothes but because your nastiness comes through. You can't blame women for having preference to whom they want to date just like I am sure all you angry men here also have preference which you and women have a right to.
I visited Toronto this month and it was an amazing city with friendly, hard working people. Trust me I saw beautiful women dating/married to all types of men and very happy together. So guys look within yourself before talking bad of women,etc.
Also if you hate Toronto so much,shut up, stop complaining and either leave and relocate and start all over or change you life for better.
#Good advice on Aug 23, 2015 :
Don't come to Toronto. The elite only wants you to be a cash cow for the government workers who depend on warm bodies to give an excuse to raise taxes and mismanage taxpayers monies for the personal gain of a few.
#Leaving Canada soon on Aug 22, 2015 :
Canadians have turned into hard-hearted, immigrant-hating SOBs who pander to women. A matriarchial xenophobic country.
#Toronto Sucks on Aug 22, 2015 :
To Anonymous:

Yes I did live in Canada, namely in Toronto, close to Humber Bay Park, but was not fortunate enough to make at least 5K after tax, to own a nice lakefront condo and a couple of fancy cars to be even remotely considered a dating material. The rest of womyns in Toronto would rather molest 3 year old boys than date a man working for 70,000 dollars a year.

"Wow...This is worse than the you tube comments section. More power for you ladies. And dear men, if women don't date you, it's not their fault. If they prefer being drug addicts & living with lesbians than dating your sorry ass, imagine how inviting your advances are."

So what is it in men's approaches that needs to change?
A lot of people I know are perpetually single.
#Stand Your Ground on Aug 21, 2015 :
The problem with Toronto is uncontrolled mass immigration + refugee intake every year coupled with the influx of wealthy investors who buy bulks of condominiums as money laundering or investment properties.

Immigrants and refugees who come to Canada are usually uneducated 3rd world scum who do not speak no English and are unwilling to accept local culture, customs and traditions. They come to Canada to collect welfare, child benefits, free health care and other perks associated with Permanent Residency/Citizenship in Canada.
Investors come to Canada looking to increase their profits using Canadian “housing bubble” with prices going up every month.

But… luxury “super duper” cars have nothing to do with that. Many Torontonians are wanna be Americans thus they lease those fancy cars just to “keep up with the Jones”.

Remember-Canadian women are only interested in money and status in the society thus males have to go 10 extra miles just to have a remote chance for a date.

And if you do not own an upscale property, do not have a hefty bank account and do not drive a luxury car then you do not even stand a remote chance to ask Canadian female out. A Toronto woman would prefer to date a Grade 1 student than get asked out for a date with a decent man.

Get out from Toronto and NEVER look back!

I was wondering how much pound of weed go in toronto
#CD on Aug 19, 2015 :
People here need to get a life. Really?!? is this the place to be talking about such issues. Toronto is a nice city to live in and visit. It is what you make of it. The job market can be tough anywhere when the economy is suffering.

And Toronto women are fine, there are stuck up women and outgoing ones. find the right ones for you, stop dwelling on who doesn't want you... it works for me.

There is sexism everywhere, obviously, it shouldn't be tolerated but women in Toronto can be sexist as well. It goes both ways, like everywhere - women take the brunt of it.
#Anonymous on Aug 14, 2015 :
Toronto is the best city in the world. Men who dont respect a woman's rights is a misogynist pig. Toronto rewards women because women work hard, unlike sexist men who objectify us in the workplace because we are wearing clothing for the hot weather. My cleavage is not for you to objectify you creep and paedophile.
#Henry Makow Fan on Aug 11, 2015 :
I completely agree how a majority of Torontonian women are stuck up, entitled, narcissistic and a pain in the back part.

There are speculations that female pedophilia in Toronto will be decriminalized because since no man wants to have to do with anything related to mentally deranged Toronto women, the lonely Toronto women will fill the void my molesting children.

A detective from the Toronto Police services claimed that they cannot investigate a female teacher if she strips naked in front of minor students. There appears to be a female pedophilia conspiracy in Toronto.
#Naomi on Aug 11, 2015 :
Women of Toronto, Men invented Tampons to oppress us.
"Free Bleed" to be free from male oppression.
#Holland on Aug 11, 2015 :
Toronto;s women are crappy for real. I wonder why so many women in Toronto are taking jobs which involve prepubescent children since no decent man wants to date the typical Toronto woman.
#Surprised on Aug 10, 2015 :
I came to this site to compare Barcelona to Toronto. However, I am utterly shocked at the comments on this website. I didn't know that the forums on this website were the meeting place of Toronto's biggest losers and social outcasts.
#Clark Kent on Aug 08, 2015 :
Glad to see I'm not the only one.

How can all of us be "fat losers living in their mom's basement who can't get laid".

Give me a break... Toronto used to be a great city but now it has no redeeming qualities.

It's waaaaay too expensive, it hates entrepreneurs, free speech is not allowed, practically impossible to become an owner, horrible weather, difficult to find a job past minimum wage...

And the women just don't seem all that interested in dating... They'd rather take anti-depressants (or hard drugs) and live with lesbians and cats instead of dating a decent man.

This is no place for a young man with ambition unless you happen to have family here and a little niche for your specific ethnic group.
Toronto is supposedly so tolerant yet people are not allowed to have their own opinions.
Sean Simoes was fired because his friend said "Fuck her right in the pussy" on camera, and now RooshV is being blocked from entering the country to give a speech.

What happened Toronto???

Do any of you feminists have any clue what living in this city is even like? Do any of you ride the subway enough to see how depressed our population is becoming or do you get to drive to work everyday in the car that your daddy bought you?
#Mark on Aug 07, 2015 :
This city is DISGUSTING! It's expensive and over-crowded! People are rude and for the most part uninterested in the future of the city. I agree with a previous poster who mentioned the terrible public infrastructure. It takes hours to go from one place to the other, the subway and light rail are always packed. I think the only people who like this place are people who bought real estate and are hoping to re-sell it four times the original price to some new sucker.
#Anonymous on Aug 06, 2015 :
99% of the left wing women in Toronto are horrible. Get out of this place. Very feminist and intolerance of smart people and innovation.
#Bethany on Aug 05, 2015 :
The patriarchy has ordered the air conditioners to be increased in our office cubicles to make our nipples hard to encourage the men to stare at our high beams.
#jake on Aug 04, 2015 :

Yeah right; 400k at the age of 23. You're either delusional or a liar.

I love women but I really don't like the hard-bitten attitude of the strident, righteous wimmin in this crappy city. If you read my post, I've already said I'm leaving but it's not due to my inability to adapt to it but that I know that there are far better places to live. Places with kinder women, better weather, and which provide better value.

Toronto just ain't worth it.
#Poiuy on Aug 02, 2015 :
Toronto is one ugly overrated 3rd-tiers city with crumbling infrastructure, poor public transit and the suckiest architecture. I would leave in a heartbeat if I could
#Anonymous on Aug 02, 2015 :
Lookit guys….if a woman perceives you as preying on her weaknesses, she’s going to recoil from you. If you approach her as a human being….nah that’s too complicated. A naked woman in Toronto is not sexual you perverts
#Allysa on Aug 02, 2015 :
#Jake. You are complaining about not finding a job because you are a lazy misogynist male.

Women have been oppressed by the patriarchy, yet I managed to find a job which pays me $425,000 a year and I'm only 23 who was recently admitted to the Bar to practice law in Ontario.

Toronto is a growing city. If you can't evolve, move out
#Jake on Jul 30, 2015 :
Toronto is just horrible.

Cost of living for (obviously, given the price of housing) RENT is unjustifiably astronomical. The housing stock is often old and mouldy and very unattractive. I've seen better housing in third rate European cities.

The people have poor social skills, are cranky and surly most of the time. There's just this pervasive hostility in the air that I can't quite understand. Or indifference; one is given the distinct impression here that any attempt to talk to people (ESPECIALLY THE WOMEN!!) is unwelcome. Then if you bring this topic up for discussion with anyone you either get a resigned acknowledgement of its validity or are told that it's "your problem".

The job market is being hollowed out as 'free trade' continues to transform the workforce into service workers, with poor wages and no pensions.

Avoid Toronto at all costs. It's best days are behind it, at least for the average worker. I'm leaving next year myself.
#Bethany on Jul 24, 2015 :
The CN tower was created by the patriarchy to intimidate and oppress the women of Toronto.

WTF did i just read..... I only came here to check out downting living expense not feminism and horny lonely guys
#Agata on Jul 10, 2015 :
LOL I just came on here to see if I'm overpaying for my apartment in Toronto... What I found was a forum of Toronto's sexually frustrated men, which is not representative AT ALL of the average male in this city. You guys are not getting women because you are desperate losers lacking social skills. You're also probably incredibly vapid and superficial. Don't blame Toronto or the women. Blame yourselves.
#Mark on Jul 08, 2015 :
It appears that many women in Toronto are immoral and act like prostitutes
#Anonymous on Jul 05, 2015 :
Toronto = Sexually frustrated men, who find they can’t get laid.

So what do they do? They workout, get a trendy haircut, dress as nice as possible, try to learn some social skills. Than they find out it still doesn’t work.

So they get nihilistic , get some trendy tattoos, roll their sleeves up to show them off, ahh, maybe some tatted up bimbo gives them a tease.

So After this fails, they get some elevator shoes, Hey maybe if they get a bit of height itill help, well this still doesnt work. So now…. They look at those nice cars and think, shit…”maybe if i get a nice car or something it will help” nope.

The only solution is philosophical, and that is to accept your fate, As a Torontonian you will be sexually frustrated.

I wondered why some guys were fat, and it’s because they gave up. See, they have no incentive to look good for women because there are none. if you do have a girlfriend though, shell be a 20 year old toyota corolla with the maintenance of a ferrari. No joke.

Know what you need in that city? Luck. Like winning the lotto to get a female. . They should make a documentary exposing this reality, after men see this they will be running like hell from that place LOL. Its a dark truth. Toronto.. A nice city with a hell for it’s males.
#go to be certain on Jun 30, 2015 :
When my friend arrived in Toronto one of the locals came up to him and said 'this is our town, we don't like new arrivals... go home buddy !!"

Wasn't exactly the warmest welcoming... On the way to the hotel the taxi driver said in a gruff voice .. "Sonny you're not gonna last in this town... it's rough and it's ugly and you'll soon wish you'd never come..."

He decides to head downstairs to the bar to order a cocktail ..

The waiter said to my friend "boy, you'ld be better off switching teams in this ole town.. 'cos partners can be mad, bad and dangerous to know..."

Wow, he was beginning to sense that something wasn't right... what had he stepped into...
#Den on Jun 29, 2015 :
Why is everyone taking about women? Toronto sounds like a city full of sexually frustrated losers.
#Clark Kent on Jun 28, 2015 :

Lol I wish that were true.
Even tall and handsome European dudes like me get jerked around constantly by the women of Toronto.
Even if you do manage to wade through the bullshit and get her number you just get flaked on anyways.

If you've got any ideas for a good-looking and athletic young professional, I'm all ears.
The only thing I've found to work is to focus on girls that recently moved to the city.
Any girl that's lived here for at least a few months seems entitled to a doctor with a lakeshore condo... or a drug dealer...
#JustBob on Jun 27, 2015 :
I'd say I prefer the women in Montreal personally but I'd bet a lot of the frustrated trolls on here are socially retarded Pakis and Indians so prevalent everywhere in Toronto.

Hilarious (because it is so awkward) to watch these guys in action in public even interacting with women. Basically it comes down to 'would you sex me.'

Do not read the negative comments which are spewed by a bunch of angry readers. Women in Toronto have healthier bodies, are very elegent in bed and they have higher IQs and intelligence. Men in Toronto need to respect that if a woman wants to walk naked in a playground filled with children, the police should not arrest her because a woman's body is the victim of rape culture.

if women are so sophisticated as YOU CLAIM, why the f*** do women in Toronto need to prowl around kiddie playgrounds nude? A tad of female pedophilia in Toronto?

Women in Toronto are the best in the world. You are most likely
a looser who can't get laid.

Women in Toronto know how to dress. They flaunt their best body parts because
it's the finest in the world.

Maybe if you stopped stare raping a female Torontonian's cleavage or butt cheeks
then you will get more respect from the women in Toronto.

Toronto is the best city in the world & you know it
#Kyopto on Jun 18, 2015 :

Toronto women have to be some of the worst degenerate sloots in the entire Western hemisphere.

Avoid Toronto!

Truer words have never been spoken about Toronto. Thanks for saying it out loud.

I grew up and lived in Toronto for over 20 years, everything here is 100% true.

Toronto women are shit. The problem is you don’t realize it until you’ve experienced women in other parts of the world. Then you realize how shit Toronto women really are

The Patriarchy of Toronto is causing the wage gap to hire less women.
#star wars on Jun 10, 2015 :
Hello everybody .
Part 1
SO all assholes, gays , woman/man haters , Kremlin pawn , and other propagandists should shut up , this comment only for normal people .
Part 2
As you know Toronto is the biggest city in Canada 2.7 millions people live in City of Toronto , 5.5 millions people live in Great Toronto Area and 9 millions people live in Golden Horseshoe so Toronto has 270 billions economy but GTA has almost 500 billions economy , and it's very big numbers . Almost 500 000 people which live in Toronto has 100 000 and more salary also 122 000 dollar millioners live in Toronto . Too many big companies located in Toronto it are RBC , TDB , Scotiabank , rogers , Ball Canada , manulife financial , Onex , Black Berry , Magna , part of Bombardier , Bank of Monreal , Imperial Bank and others .
What about averge salary that it's somewhere between 2900-4000 american dollars , average family in Toroto has income 82 000 canadian dollars in a one year i.e . 6750 CAN dollars in a one month you can buy new house for 3600-6300 CAN dollars for 1sq meter and old home for 2200-4900 dollars for 1st meter , prices on appartaments is upping and 1sq meter will be cost 4900-7000 CAN dollars in 2020-2022 well and average salary will be 4300-4600 CAN dollars in 2020 but I think somewhere 5000 and more will be because 6 years ago aver.salary was 2300-2500 and present 3500 , +35% and 3500 + 35%= 3500+1200=4700 dollars average salary in Toronto in 2020 .
What about population in Toronto that 47% are immigrants and 53% THOOSE who were born in Canada more information you can find in Wikipedia.

#A logical person on May 21, 2015 :
This comment section makes me want to put a gun to my head. All the stupid feminists are just killing me man.

Feminists the people you are pissed off at are not "men". Its a select amount of douches that everybody hates.

Here is the thing though, you think that men are "pigs" cause there not nice to you or whatever. What causes them to not be nice to you is how stuck up and full of yourselves you are.
Guess what if I was walking around calling every women a see a slut or a cunt, or whatever other I insults someone could come up with. Guess what there not going to be nice to me.So if I actually thought what I was saying was true, it would re enforce that way of thinking.

So when you go around calling men "pigs" and being stuck up,we are not going to nice you. So this ends up re enforcing your stupid way of thinking.

Bye bye, and to people who are not stupid thank you for your time

#Amanda on May 18, 2015 :
Men are pigs. They shud lern to treat women as human brings and not as sexual objects.

we need feminism in Toronto because men shout vulgar phrases to reporters and comment on how a woman dresses. How dare you! a woman's body is a sign of God.
#Toronto the best 1 on May 18, 2015 :

#Desjardins on May 17, 2015 :
Men need to respect women. Sexist remarks and sexist pranks have no merit in our diverse, multicultural society. Men are pigs.
#Julie on May 14, 2015 :
At least half the BMO stadium seating should be for women only where women can sit without being sexually harassed and raped.
As it is now, the stadium is designed by the patriarchy to be mysoginistic and hateful against women being the oppressed gender where women need a safe space from the mysoginist rapists.
#Andrea on May 14, 2015 :
We ask the city to remove all the male bathrooms in the stadium as a way to prevent men from congregating without female supervision.
Men congregate alone to promote the rape culture of the stadium.
#Martina on May 13, 2015 :
Toronto is the greatest city in the world. The haters and misogynists can take a hike. Toronto is a growing city and Pat should understand that he/she is delusional and a hater of Toronto.

Women in Toronto have class, Pat. A white woman's anus in Toronto is more valuable than the lives of millions of male refugees in Gaza. The anus of a white woman in Toronto is cleaner than your mouth
#Sexism in Toronto on May 12, 2015 :
"We're appalled that this trend of disrespectful behaviour would make its way to our city, let alone anywhere near our stadium," an MLSE spokesperson said in a statement to the Sun. "We are working to identify the individuals, and when we do they will be banned from all of our facilities.

"Moving forward, we will also work with our local television outlets to provide extra security support to female reporters doing live hits at any of our games. Our organization is committed to an environment where everyone can feel safe and included and discrimination or intolerance of any kind will be met with a swift and serious response.

"We’re thankful to the vast majority of our fans who have stood up against such sexist behaviour and are working with us to help prevent it in the future.”

Around a half-dozen TFC supporters weren't expecting City News reporter Shauna Hunt to approach them for comment after one of them yelled a vulgar phrase in the direction of her mic.

While interviewing a pair of fans outside BMO Field following TFC's 2-1 loss to Houston Sunday evening, a nearby heckler – apparently off-camera – can be heard yelling “f--- her right in the p----” loud enough to intentionally disrupt Hunt.

"This is something that happens to reporters on a daily basis but on Sunday at the TFC game it was out of control," Hunt said in a statement to the Toronto Sun.

"I had intoxicated men yelling it at me. I was interrupted during interviews and was anxious about going live. I felt like a piece of meat. I had reached my limit, and it was time to push back!"

Shauna Hunt should file criminal charges against these men for sexually harassing her. A woman's vagina is holier than the Mount Sinai in Israel.

Women are the best in Toronto. The many losers who slander the integrity of Toronto women should be investigated for any mental health illness.

Pat, Clark Kent and others, you need mental help. Get it before you lose your mind you misogynist losers
#Marc on May 08, 2015 :
Women in Toronto have bigger thighs, larger breasts, higher IQs and better education than women in impoverished patriarchy countries.

Most of the men on this board cannot handle a strong, independent woman and they resort to spreading hate speech about our women in Toronto.

# Klondike

This is the kind of argumentation that actually makes sense and might actually sway some of my opinions about Toronto.

Those are ok numbers - 50% of people make around 3000$/month = $36,000/year.

That is a livable income but you will have a lot of trouble becoming an owner of anything in the city. The real-estate market is non-sensical. Average detached is somewhere around $500-600k (and that is low-balling).

I've read elsewhere that the average salary is actually higher than that but here is the problem. These "average" salaries are calculated as the average for working people but Toronto has an issue with unemployment (i.e., they don't become a part of those calculated salary averages). Also very many of Toronto's young/youngish people are in post-secondary for a long time so they might not be taken into account either.

Like I've said in posts way below, if you can get into the public sector, the financial sector, or perhaps learn a trade, you might be able to carve out a life for yourself here financially. But I'm afraid those numbers you presented might not be as representative as you might think. Finding a job here is the first step to becoming part of that group. Just saying I think there is more to the story.
#klondike on May 04, 2015 :
To my mind toronto the best city in the world , because toronto the center of energy superpower . 50 percent people have average salary 2650 ... 3500 dollars , 10 percents people have 1900 ... 2500 salary , 20 per 3500 ... 4800 dollars , 12 percent 4600 ... 12000 canadian dollars , and only 7 percents people of toronto have salary 500 ... 1400 CAD but 1 percent have salary in a one month 10000... 600000 dollars . Average salary in richmond hill , aurora and new markam 5500 CAD because the richest parts of city in toronto
##Anonymous on May 04, 2015 :
Don't worry I'm leaving by the end of the year.
You wont have to go beg to your overlords to get rid of a person that has an opinion.

I don't get why questioning the status quo makes me a misogynist but that is pretty much the exact attitude I'm railing against... political correctness has become the new religion of the city. Even if everyone is miserable and we're dragging ourselves down, all that seems to matter is that no one's feelings are hurt. Good luck TO I'll probably come check up on you in a few years.
I hope by then you are not just a giant condo-building. RIP Honest Ed's.
#Anonymous on May 03, 2015 :
Numbeo should forward the I.P addresses of Pat, Clark Kent, Leave Toronto and other sexist posters who disgrace the name of Toronto.

##michelle on May 03, 2015 :
I came here to update the living cost in TO now and this is what i got. ?!?!??? urmmm i studied in Toronto from 2004 t0 2008, graduated Business Admin at Humber College and never have a chance to come back. what i missed all these years ? I travel to UK, USA and many other asian countries, i still think Toronto is one of the safest city i have been to. As an asian girl, i would say Toronto is the best welcoming city for foreigner ESL person ( english as second lang.) ans the least racist city ( maybe in the world). That is my opinion from 6 years ago. Does the city change that much ?
#Anonymous on May 03, 2015 :
Women in Toronto have to stand up against rape culture in Toronto.

Men are pigs and child molesters who prey on women during rush hour in the crowded TTC buses and trains.

Women in Toronto are advised to report any suspected male predator because if a man makes sexually harassing comments against a woman, he will later on molest babies and children. Ted Bundy and Paul Bernardo started out with harming animals, and look at what they did later.

When a male approaches a woman without her consent and makes sexist remarks on her cleavage and thong tail, report it to the Toronto Police Services.

Women are advised to lobby with the Federal Progressive Conservatives to raise the age of consent from 16 to 25 to prevent child molesters from molesting our women and children in Canada.
#Femilove on May 03, 2015 :
We have a feminist premier who put TV ads to teach men not to rape and drug women and that Ontario men are evil.
We need to have feminist mayors and feminist police to control the men and have them move out of province.

#To all haters (another troll), read posts first otherwise don't get caught in places or discussions you don't know about. 100,000 moving to Toronto has been the desperate of the world (third-world) during the past 25 years.

if u don't like Toronto, feel free to move, we don't want pessimstic and sexist people in our growing city. Toronto is the best city in the world and The Economist Magazine is evidence to support my claim.

Why would over 100,000 move to our great city if it were bad? You critics need some mental help.
#eva on May 02, 2015 :
Ed, you're right about that, financial capital, etcetera, but it's for Canada. You said it yourself. It does not mean it's a quality city or efficient city or system. And it's too easy to say "haters" but it's just people saying facts. Be thankful for those voices otherwise no chance of improvements for the future. There's a danger for stagnation and falling behind if there is no voicing out.
#Ed Vlimsberg on May 01, 2015 :
Toronto is the financial capital, fashion capital and education capital of Canada. No arguments about that haters.
#Clark Kent on Apr 30, 2015 :

Yeah I couldn't tell if some of these other posters are just trolling like you said.
I mostly write on this forum to reach out to the few people who might read this and think twice about whether or not this is the "greatest city in the world."
Toronto is kinda falling apart if you ask me. Birthrate in Ontario is 1.5 right now which means we need to immigrate a lot of people just to maintain the population and keep the economy propped up.
It's just like you say, a lot of people move here from third world and milk the benefits of a Canadian citizenship. I'm not insulting those people, I totally understand why they're doing what they're doing. But if you ride the subway it has been looking more and more like the third world.
Toronto is losing what it once had and I don't know if we're going to be able to fix it unless we can honestly talk about the issues... which is not allowed in fem-centric Camaba.
Hopefully my plan to escape pans out because I don't think I could handle another depressing winter here. There is no longer anything of value here to balance out the horrible weather and hyper-PC culture.
#Pat on Apr 30, 2015 :
1. Toronto is NOT the greatest city in the world. You need a brave mouth or have a mental illness to say such a thing. In fact, it is slipping as the population (more mass immigration for 25 years) grows each year. It is in the first-world of cities, but is one of the worst in the first-world. 2. The one(s) posting as #Anonymous is a troll who is the actual sexist one by making women look bad and biased. 3. People are not migrating here because it's the best, but if you look at statistics, the past 25 years have been almost completely people from the third-world just desperate to just get away from their troubled and hopeless situations. It's not exactly quality people and fellow-developed countries that are moving to Toronto. This is the state and reality of Toronto these days.

Well I came here to find information on the cost of living in Toronto, and expected at least some comments to be about the actual cost of living there, and yet almost none were to be found. It is the internet, and I'm not sure why I thought that the comments wouldn't be about feminism and how prudish the girls are, but can anyone share some opinions about the actual cost of living? It may make this thread way more usable, and helpful.
#Anonymous on Apr 22, 2015 :
