What is the cost to live in Toronto? An extraordinary amount of posters are uttering sexist remarks against women. This forum needs none of your misogyny.
#Anonymous on Apr 24, 2015 :
Someone should report these spammers and notify the police for the disturbing amount of hate speech, misogyny and sexist comments.

Many of you need mental help.
#Rose on Apr 24, 2015 :
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 :
Toronto is the greatest city in the world.People are immigrating to Toronto for a reason, and it's not the misogyny, racist and sexist comments which devalue our women and ethnic multicultural society.
#Black and White on Apr 21, 2015 :
Toronto is NOT THE BEST CITY ever! It's a cesspool of feminist and gender bending filth. A Paradise for sloots and lesbos.

Not a good city for traditional people.
#Clark Kent on Apr 20, 2015 :
To Anonymous,

I spoke with an Econ graduate a week ago about Toronto and he brought up that very same economist article. He said it made no damn sense and I kinda agree.

Toronto is the best city in the world... If you're gay, a feminist, or a woman. There is nothing really here for ambitious straight guys. The only dudes I know who are not traumatized by Toronto dating are guys who can afford to live off their parents' wealth. For honest hard working guys that want to be able to make something of themselves there is lot really much here.
#Anonymous on Apr 20, 2015 :
Toronto is the best city in the world. Ignore the haters. The haters have themselves to blame. Many of you don't respect women. This is exactly why you can never become succesful you intolerant sexist bigot!

Toronto is the world's best city to live in, according to research looking at a range of factors including safety, cost of living and liveability.

According to analysis carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit of 36 major cities, Canada's economic powerhouse finished top.

While it wasn't named first in any of the specific rankings, a strong performance overall placed Toronto top. It came eighth in the safety index and fourth in terms of liveability.
#Misandra on Apr 20, 2015 :
Toronto police services needs to have men free neighborhoods where women can live happily.
No men no boy no male dogs no male cats ever allowed.
#Tinashe on Apr 19, 2015 :
At least 1 in 3 women in Toronto are sexually assaulted in their lifetimes. The Toronto Police Services should enforce a ByLaw which makes it mandatory for all males to be microchipped to prevent rape culture.

Women should be protected from potential rapists. Deport all Indians, Muslims, Arabs, white men and all men from Canada.

Men who purchase sex from escorts on BackPage and Craiglist are perverts. Men are terrible people.
#anonymous on Apr 18, 2015 :
Studies have show that men who urinate standing up are more likely to rape women.
In order to protect women from rapists we will advocating for a City Bylaw that requires the removal of all male urinals from the City.
#TO feminist on Apr 18, 2015 :
We want all male university applicants to undergo rapist screening before they are allowed to attend university.
Men must stop looking at women and smiling at women; this is rape pure and simple.
#Anon on Apr 18, 2015 :
Wow, the majority of these comments... Just wow. No wonder most comment sections require a login of some sort.
#Life on Apr 17, 2015 :
What's up with all the feminist jargon and propaganda called rape culture?

What do these feminists want? A police state in Toronto??!!!???!!!
#Anonymous on Apr 16, 2015 :
Rape culture is a serious issue in Toronto. As a feminist from the University of Toronto, I hold the belief that all men should be incarcerated if they violate the rights of women by staring at them. Stare rape is the worst form of rape with actual rape being the worst type of rape. At least 1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted on campus.
#Vivian on Apr 15, 2015 :
The CN Tower is concrete proof that the Patriarchy is still standing in Toronto!
#Gail on Apr 15, 2015 :
The Ontario government has TV ads saying to stop raping women but the men keep on staring at us on the street which equals millions of rapes per day.
Even on the bus or subway everytime a man looks at us a rape is being committed.
Men are bad and disgusting creatures. Women are good.
#Anonymous on Apr 15, 2015 :
Women are oppressed by the patriarchy in Toronto. The amount of sexist comments about women proves that there is misogyny in Toronto.

If a female teacher or any other female office worker wants to dress sexy at work, who the hell are you to judge you sexist pig!

the male students and employees should learn not to rape
#Food Prices on Apr 13, 2015 :
I saw too many men in Toronto who looked like corpses.

They had no color, no energy, and seemingly no will to live.

Spending too much time in Toronto will reduce your ambition, your horniness, and your happiness.

Many guys I talked to said that when they traveled out of Toornto, they couldn’t believe that hotter women made regular eye contact with them and responded with gentle smiles and warm vibes. Toronto is one of those cities that can make men hate life. Staying out of here in Toronto becomes essential for your mental health.
#Anonymous on Apr 12, 2015 :
Toronto is the BEST CITY IN THE WORLD! Toronto is rated #1 for economy, social stability and # 1 for young adults. The Economist cannot be wrong.
The haters who spew their misogyny and racism should take a hike!
#Marlyn Manson on Apr 10, 2015 :
Good luck trying to have a ten minute non-interrupted conversation in a bar or club in Toronto if her friends are nearby. If they don’t physically pull her away from you then what happens is that a rotating gaggle of women will come to “check up” on her, as if you’re on the verge of beating or raping her in full view of everyone. I’ve never seen such baby-like behavior in the Western world. I even experienced a case where the fat friend of a girl I was talking to said that I could “proceed” with the conversation. F**k that.

In DC you have a bunch of lame people who think they are important because of their government job. In Toronto you have a bunch of lame people who think they are cool because… I don’t know why. This is even worse because instead of trying to impress you with the work they’re doing, they try to impress you with slang, name-dropping, or commenting on how “busy” they are. I remember when a girl tried to insult me by calling me a “fucktard” and another white bread girl said to “get at” her. Just because you know the words to a Drake song and go to hip restaurants doesn’t make you cool.

I know some girls are reading right now and thinking, “They don’t give you eye contact because you are ugly!” This very well may be the case, but in Montreal I got daily eye contact from women who were much better looking than the Toronto specimens I had to deal with. Not only that, but Montreal women would smile at me. Yes, you read that right: attractive women would look at me and smile. In Toronto I might as well have been invisible.

I never saw an average-looking guy with a hot girl, but I saw many attractive guys with average girls. Toronto is a penis paradise where a woman can date a man much more attractive than she is pretty. If you’re not a good looking guy, you either have to own a nightclub or approach 1000 girls a week.

The age of consent in Toronto is going to be raised to 21. In Toronto, if a 18 year old male approaches a 19 year old female, he is viewed by Toronto society as a sexual predator in the league of those who were convicted of child molestation. If a 40 year old female teacher exchanges 2,218 text messages with a 14 year old male student in the middle of the night, the 14 year old male student is viewed as the predator.

Read at least 10 of the comments which are pro-Toronto and you will realize why Toronto has a bad reputation.

People who never travelled outside of Toronto claim they are the best city in the world

The government of Canada shuts down any criticism of their fraudulent immigration scam which nets in 250,000 people a year.

Doctors in India work as toilet cleaners in Toronto.

I agree with all the anti-Torontowomen because Toronto is not a good city for straight males.
#Clark Kent on Apr 05, 2015 :
### To Steven,

What development and technological advances?

The city is constantly under maintenance construction, which is why the traffic is constantly jammed.

Toronto may play a role in emerging Digital Technologies but that is the only sector I can even imagine for technological innovation.

That is the only area I've been paying attention to that is interested in entrepreneurship, and most of the success stories I've heard are about Canadians leaving for the US to work in development teams. The government is pushing out grants right now to add tinder to this area but it's an open question if that will benefit Canada's economy.

Financial services seems like the only private sector that is guaranteed to give a person a livable wage here (where you can save money monthly and live a middle-class lifestyle).

Torontonians are always pushing this "Toronto is the greatest city in the world" thing, but they never ever provide specifics. It makes me wonder if you people have even travelled to other parts of the world.

### To Curtis,

Don't know too much about that area, but I've also heard of people working as merchant mariners on the great lakes. Maybe check into that as well, just a thought. Good luck.
#Steven on Apr 05, 2015 :
What a bunch of hate! Are you kidding me?

Toronto is the BEST CITY IN THE WORLD!!!

The haters should learn to respect women &not treat them like sexual objects.

Toronto is a growing city, and the haters can leave if they want!

Toronto is the best city in the world. Period.

Look at all the development and technological advances.

Hi, I am planning to migrate to canada from Tanzania East Africa in next few months. Thinking of shifting to Toronto as jobs probably might be better there. Can anyone tell me about offshore,Oil rig, marketing job prospects there ? I have 5 years experience. Can anyone advice please ? Thank you.
#Melanie on Apr 03, 2015 :
The men here are voyeurs-pervs; they rape-stare me when I walk topless on the sidewalk.
Then there are the perv-misogynists who look the other way.
The patriarchy objectifies women's open air breasting to the point that they won't support the fight against breast cancer, after all our breast aren't sexual because we use them to feed our daughters.
#u all actors on Apr 03, 2015 :
A lot of your comments arewritten by the sale perqon with different names and sound so RAcist Sexist and show a huge problem of civisme ,,, thetopic here is about life coast and you are deviating it into all your poor frustrations about men and women,,, as if you are a 10000 per cent canadian and all those who want to have the right to immigrate should not,,, as i know canada is built by immigrants and all canadians are sons and daughter of immigrants,, an other thing,,, it s so over acted your hate to women to gayq to foreigners,," i hope youfind peace or think for an other way to solv this crazy hitchkokian movie you build"because all we wantis informations about life ,, prices,. Hints.,, not hate!
#Good Advice on Mar 31, 2015 :
The taxes are incredibly high, the weather is awful, and the only money to be made is in the public sector. For this reason Canada has to immigrate constantly and depend on foreign investment to maintain itself and its population.

The most depressing aspect to top it off is that unlike many other places like the US, Europe, Asia, etc., there is no national identity. To be ‘Canadian’ doesn’t mean very much other than that we can supposedly tolerate unliveable weather.

And for this reason, feminism/liberalism is the only cause or identity that the people of Canada can rally themselves behind. There is no love of freedom and opportunity a la the US, there is only the determination to make everyone equal across the board.

Immigrants that come from at least somewhat traditional cultures huddle into their little groups because there is no culture to be invited to other than feminism (which is just a bunch of ugly women and manginas talking about the “patriarchy” while their own men because reclusive and neurotic). Gradually the youngsters of these cultures cave but it takes a generation or two.

Unless you want to be a feminist teacher or a government worker, don’t come to Canada. Almost every well-educated person leaves for the US to make money (barring the financial services sector).

#Fan of Ezra Levant on Mar 28, 2015 :
The pedophile educators and Kathleen Wynne are starting to introduce a highly explicit Sexual Education Program which will teach Grade 1 children (6 year olds) on sexualized body parts.

So many female teachers are sleeping with their underaged students these days, the Sex-Ed was drafted by a confessed child pornographer named Benjamin Levin.

Your children will suffer tremendously because the perverts are going to teach anal sex to your 12 year old child starting from September 2015.

Organized institutional Pedophilia is going to come out in the open in Ontario. Teachers will be grooming their underaged students using the Sex-Ed manual.

If you don't believe me, listen to Ezra Levant and Blazing Cat Fur on the horrendous curriculum which many female teachers will teach 6 year olds in class.

At least 75% of teachers in Ontario are white female teachers.

if u cant get laid in toronto no woman will love you anywhere u looser
#Clark Kent on Mar 20, 2015 :
Kathleen Wynne our lesbian premier has recently changed the elementary school curriculum.

The indoctrination now starts as early as Grade 3 when young kids are taught about all the genders.
You know... male, female, homo, hetero, sapio, male-in-a-woman's body, trisexual, human-an-animal's body.

Don't bother raising your own kids, the government will raise them for you and first order of business is how pursuing women as a male most likely means you're a rapist.

Thank god I grew up ten years ago when boys and girls actually got to know each other... Now its a friggin circus.

There is no need for homophobia but if you're a straight male this is not the place for you.
Go to a place where men and women actually want to have something to do with each other.
#Gay Pride on Mar 19, 2015 :
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 1960 year old toyota corolla with the maintenance of a 2016 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. Take an actor, really good looking, have him see how long it takes to get a female. Want to hear something gross about the entitlement of women in toronto? so it’s bad enough they are surrounded by good looking men, trendy haircuts, nice fashion sense, decent intelligence, but, they still snub the men by having exotic travel wishes. they wish to travel around the world for penis all over, even though they are already spoiled in their home town! Outrageous! Most of the women are average and also losers, they spend any ounce of money they have as a rich man is just waiting on a list to pay for everything they need.

I think the gay community in toronto is growing because of this truth. Highly estrogenic males realize the situation unconscioisly and just turn gay in my opinion
#Kim on Mar 19, 2015 :
I don't find Toronto to be a friendly city; there are rude people almost everywhere in Toronto. What makes Toronto think that they are the center of the universe?
#Expat on Mar 18, 2015 :
In 2 years this thread has generated almost 300 comments indicating that the problem is alive and well and only getting worse by every passing day.

I’d honestly recommend every Canadian male to get sporty and educated, learn a trade and a foreign language, save some money and leave North America behind for good.

I’ve made a move over 6 years ago and never looked back or regretted my decision!
Don’t be afraid to change your life! This IS indeed the case when the grass IS greener on the other side of the Atlantic ocean!
#Russia Rocks on Mar 16, 2015 :
Toronto girls are unapproachable, undateable, and down right disgusting.

They Always dress in black, no class, over weight, no style, no grace. They don't know how to flirt, no eye contact, no sexiness.

And yes everything Roosh has said in this article is so true. I remember reading this forum 3 years ago when it was first written and these traits have grown even more obvious in Toronto women. Men here only add to there over inflated ego's by dropping down 4 points. See attractive guys literally fighting over 4's. This city is poison for the soul!
#Vladimir on Mar 14, 2015 :
Fuck you Anglo-Canadian beaches in Toronto.

You AUTOMATICALLY LOSE the moment you even think of leading on, disrespecting and then destroying an intelligent, handsome, fun-loving, adventurous Caucasian man.

All the European, Asia-pacific and American girls are getting that premium dick from guys who make top Hollywood talent such as Brad Pitt and George Clooney LOOK LAME AS F0CK.

Compare that the you're depressive state of affairs and LAUGH you ignorant twit bitches.

Only North American city the way it is -Toronto. Value is sleeping with the winner not trying to trick him with retarded games only to suck diseased beta paki dick later.

Go suck some more 4 inch cab driver dick the moment you need to get some.

Forget the big dick Mediterranean, Middle eastern or European guys - some of which are the cream of the crop btw AND YOU KNOW IT.

GO to F0cking hell Toronto women! Focking whores!
#Protocols of Zion on Mar 13, 2015 :
Roosh has it plainly said:

Once you have difficult, psychotic women...they will do anything to bring you down. many of the educational institutions in Toronto are Marxist, and we have a Fascist federal government. Canada has both Communism and Fascism in the same landscape.

#Scitt on Mar 11, 2015 :
toronto is a frozen hellhole of a city...they keep increasing the taxes and bus fares with no similar increase in services.

toronto is a trap. stay FAR AWAYYY from Toronto. You'll regret migrating to this city because this city is an elite conservative city.
#Jack Daniels on Mar 10, 2015 :
RE: James on March 08, 2015

I don't think teachers are allowed to hug or "cuddle" their students. I've worked in the TDSB for two decades, and the school board sternly warn our workers not to get too intimate with the students.

If you have any knowledge of any female teacher "cuddling" her students on TDSB property, kindly notify the relevant authorities so it can be investigated, THOUGH I DOUBT THE TDSB WILL DO ANYTHING BECAUSE IT'S A WOMAN we're dealing with.
#Kimberley Stolzberg on Mar 10, 2015 :
Recollect that the natural differences between dogs are highly marked in all these respects., and that men are quite as variable by nature as other animals of like species.

Let us for a moment suppose that the practice of eugenics should hereafter raise the average quality of our nation to that of its better moiety at the present day, and consider the gain.

The aim of eugenics is to bring as many influences as can be reasonably employed, to cause the useful classes in the community to contribute more than their proportion to the next generation.

Men are nothing but misogynists and women in Toronto MUST be at the forefront of the eugenics movement to remove male aggression and misogyny.

James, if a female teacher wants to cuddle with her students, who are you to judge you misogynist loser who can't get laid? Female teachers do not molest children. Men molest children.
#James on Mar 08, 2015 :
Male hate culture in Ontario:

At birth your foreskin is removed because it's considered dirty.
The law protects a girls foreskin but not a boy's because Ontario hates boys.

In school the female teaches want to "cuddle" you and demonstrate how to use sex toys.
Then you are brainwashed into believing you are a rapist and the abuser.
If your adult female sex abuser gets pregnant you have to pay her child support when you turn 18.
If a woman decides to punch and kick you for no reason; the police take her side.
If you are a single male, women can sell you sex but you are arrested for purchasing sex.

A woman can walk around topless because breasts aren't sexual but if you touch them you are committing sexual assault.

In the work place a woman can grab your ass or flash her breasts or dress in see through clothes and the man gets the blame.

If you get married and then divorced you will live in poverty.

And now Kathleen Wynn our premier is running more male bashing men are all rapist brainwashing TV ads because us horrible men haven't learned our lesson.
#The Chosen One on Mar 06, 2015 :
Toronto is a good place for those that are destitute, or refugees, or seeking shelter.

Its not about the fine things in life thats for sure. Its about money, its about how much you make, and that is what it is ALL about. Nothing else matters in this place.

Take it or leave it.
#Clark Kent on Mar 04, 2015 :
I check on this forum once in a while just kuz I find this topic interesting and I always find the claims and responses here are so extreme.

I can't help but wonder if this whole thread is the masterwork of a super-troll.

I can speak for myself though, I think Toronto has its good points... But you might as well snip your balls off if you want to live here.
I'm still adamant to leave within the next few years once I've got enough credentials and a somewhat padded resume.

It can't be a co-incidence that so many men here say the same thing.
The women here just don't seem interested in relationships unless you're rich, a drug-dealer, a part of your cultural niche, or a sociopath.
Preferably all of the above.
Not my cup of tea.
Give me Europe, Montreal, or even the US any day of the week.
I like meeting people on my day-to-day and not only through work, friends, or school.
Not every aspect of life has to feel like business.

#Clark Kent on Mar 03, 2015 :
To Zena,

I don't know what your qualifications or skills are so that is a bit of a vague question for me to answer.
What I can tell you with some certainty is the following.
Toronto is primarily a service industry economy. Finance is big here so if you have connections into banking there could be some opportunity
Toronto has enough lower paying jobs to grab but it becomes difficult to break into the middle-income bracket unless you have some specific skill-set that is in demand. Toronto probably has the most job opportunities in Canada right now but I'd say very little career development opportunities without a specific skillset.
For lower income jobs there are restaurants, catering, barristas, pubs, nightclubs, sex-work (i.e., dancers, etc.). Most people I know can grab these jobs here and there when they need them.
If you're looking to save money I'd say stay out of downtown/midtown Toronto or even North York. Rent and living is cheaper in Scarborough although that is the sketchy part of town. Toronto can be a very expensive city if you want a more or less comfortable lifestyle with decent standard of living.
Where do I think opportunity is in Toronto? I'm hedging my bets right now on the media arts industry. As far as I understand it there is enough opportunity in things like UX, front-end/back-end development, and probably other media arts related things as well if you're willing to invest the time to get some experience.

I've been in post-secondary for the last 7 years or so so I am not the best person to ask but that is my 0.02 of observations.
#Pat on Mar 01, 2015 :

If you don't like the progress in Toronto LEAVE!
#Pat on Feb 28, 2015 :
Besides many of the comments here, to get the REAL story about Toronto and where it is heading, ask only those born and raised in Toronto, or older-eras of immigrants or people who have been living in Toronto at least since the early 1990s, even visitors who have been to Toronto a number of times starting anytime before the 1990s and have seen it now for comparisons. Don't really ask or listen to anyone else.

I have been pleasantly surprised with exceptions to that tendency when they have presented over the years, but those have been the exceptions. If you are willing to accept as gospel whatever the Star and the CBC are shoving down your throat and to have people be distant a$$holes to you when you are an otherwise pleasant coworker or a non-threatening stranger, then you will likely find Toronto to be a nice enough place. If you want the milk of human kindness or to date a feminine woman, however, then Toronto is unlikely to be your cup of tea.
#Teacher on Feb 23, 2015 :
The Toronto District School Board might teach this to your 5 year old kids:

“We’re very committed to this,” Wynne told reporters on Monday.

The changes will impact students from Grade 1 to Grade 12.

Grade 1

Students in Grade 1 will be taught the proper names for body parts – something child-abuse investigators have long urged.

They will also learn how to recognize non-verbal signals, such as facial expressions and tone of voice, to better communicate with others.

Grade 2

In Grade 2, students will learn about bodily changes and development, verbal and physical violence, and the concept that “no means no.”

Grades 3-4

Grade 3 students will learn about same-sex relationships, while the physical, emotional and social impacts of puberty will move from Grade 5 to Grade 4.

Grades 5-6

In Grade 5, students will continue learning about puberty, including menstruation and spermatogenesis, and how these processes relate to reproduction.

Students in Grade 6 will learn about masturbation and “gender expression.” They will also be educated on how to build healthy relationships and consent.

Grades 7-8

In Grades 7-8, students will learn about the dangers of “sexting.”

They will also discuss contraception, anal and oral sex, and ways to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
#Tranny on Feb 12, 2015 :
You might wonder where do Toronto women fill the void if they hate adult men so much? Answer: Do you read the news every day about some female teacher having sexualrelations with minor students?

The Toronto District School Board covers up such criminal activity from parents and the public.
#Mike on Feb 10, 2015 :
Clark Kent a majority of these women in Toronto are either lebians, bi-sexuals or are interested in filling the void with children (think of the female teachers).

Any straight male is demonized by these feminist retards in Toronto.

There is no growth in Toronto except for immigration and higher taxes and housing costs.

Montreal on the other hand, is by far a better city if you know how to speak French and English.
#Clark Kent on Feb 10, 2015 :
Notice how the women on this thread don't give any reasons whatsoever for why they think men are rapists and mysoginists.

The guys here are presenting a slew of reasons why Toronto is not as great a city as everyone wants to believe it is.
We've presented specifics concerning economics/finances, social culture, dating culture, the physical rundown of the city, structural injustices.

Women on this thread, please provide something that we can actually work with.
I've never raped a woman and I treat everyone equally... so that should immediately put me in the normal guy camp.
But despite this, I still find Toronto to be kind of a shitty and depressing city to live in overall.
The women are unapproachable, are not family oriented, and seem to support an increasing amount of feminist legislation.
But at the same time they aren't interested in casual sex... So what are we doing exactly?

Please give something for the Toronto men to work with, because I honestly don't understand what kind of life I am supposed to be having here.
The women are not that interested in casual dating, yet they are not that interested in starting a family. So is there just no sex going on in this city?

I am honestly just confused about what we are trying to go for as a city.
#Club Goer on Feb 08, 2015 :
I just came back from a night out in Toronto and reading this forum completely resonated with me.

Women in Toronto are absolutely stuck up and full of themselves.

There abrasive attitude makes men hate you. A few weeks ago I was in Cuba and the women there are 10X more attractive and they know how to show respect to a man.

They know there focking place and for that I respect them.

There a lot of single women in Toronto and the constantly complain that there are no good men. But the truth is women have so many options they feel obligated to be obnoxious. I hate Toronto women. Toronto is the worst place to be a male.
#Mandy on Feb 08, 2015 :
The rape culture is terrible in Toronto:

On Tuesday 03 February, 2015, at approximately 2:30 PM, security staff were made aware of a suspicious person who has been frequenting the MAC building since November, 2014 and engaging in the following behaviours:

Attempting to interact predominantly with women on various sports teams and following some of them after they had left the building;
Attempting to place his hand on the shoulder of at least one victim;
Following victims from the MAC building to the Pitman Hall (PIT) building, and on various public streets - the subject was described to sometimes be walking behind the victims from a distance and at times from the opposite side of the street;
Approaching victims in MAC and sitting at a table staring at them;
Engaging victims in unwanted conversation and asking if they wanted to play basketball with him; and
Observing a women's team practice and following three victims afterwards as they left the building, then approaching and engaging the victims in unwanted conversation.

Further, on Monday 05 January, 2015, Security & Emergency Services were made aware that a subject had attended a victim’s office in the Podium (POD) building, complimented her appearance and engaged her in conversation, speaking about religion. He had reportedly approached her previously in December, 2014 and attempted to schedule an appointment with her. The subject complimented the victim’s appearance and insisted that he only wanted to meet with her. During the holiday break, the victim noted that the subject had attempted to add her as a friend on Facebook. On another date in December, 2014, the subject attended this office area, located on the lower ground floor of the POD building, and specifically asked to speak with this victim.

On Wednesday 26 November, 2014, at approximately 6:15 PM, Security & Emergency Services staff responded to a reported security incident in the Ryerson Athletics Centre (RAC) building and based on the behaviour of that subject, he was barred from campus at that time.
#Happily Married abroad on Feb 07, 2015 :
1. Toronto and Canadian males will NEVER ever have enough! They actually like the current state of things while rapidly turning into pussified creatures, slaves and androids without any self esteem who’ll gladly obey every order given by their female Masters. The men in Toronto worship women and beg for their worn out pussi

2. NO organization be it CAFE or whatever will ever be able to change this trend! NEVER!

3. Take off your rosy glasses, stop drinking Cool Aid, start packing your bags and get the hell out of Canada! You’ll never regret this move!
#Leave Toronto on Feb 06, 2015 :
Don't come to Toronto if you aren't expecting a good paying job. You will thank me later.
#Sane Torontonian on Feb 06, 2015 :
Pat, some of these feminist comments are disturbing, but I'm not surprised because that is how feminism is in Toronto. Feminism is a man-hating, Marxist agenda. I wouldn't be surprised if the feminists overthrow the public nudity law so that they can walk naked on the streets, yet on the same token, criminalize men who accidentally stare at their bodies. Oh wait, the TDSB and Gay Pride advocated for the removal of public nudity laws!

Toronto is one f***ked up city! Where sloots and gays walk naked, but a male is criminalized for being male. Get out of that f***ing hellhole before it consumes you!
#Pat on Feb 05, 2015 :
Goodness, it appears SEXISM runs rampant in Toronto! Just look at Heldae's comment from Feb. 1st. Not good at all.

#Alex Mac on Feb 04, 2015 :
This board is extremely sad....

Having lived in Markham, Ontario as a kid (now back in the UK) I have fond memories of Markham and Toronto in the early 90's!

Has this much changed in just 20 years??

Now being 31, I was thinking about visiting Canada, for purely Nostalgic reasons, but perhaps its best left as Nostalgia :/
#Paul Martin on Feb 04, 2015 :
I am going to objective and honest. I was raised in TO and still live here.

It is hell no doubt. I got a degree from the UFT. The women are the primary cause – there egos are super inflated.It is risky to even talk to them because just looking at a 30 year old woman can be misconstrued as sexual harassment.

Getting into trouble with a 30 year Toronto woman puts you in the same league as those horrible sex offenders in Toronto, which is why many men go their own way (MGTOW).

If you thought that conservative America or Victorian era Britian was prudish, check out Toronto where a 17 year old male is labelled a sex offender after getting molested by his 40 year old teacher (cough) Mary Gowans, Tania Pontbriand, Kim Gervais (cough)
#Toronto city of no soul on Feb 03, 2015 :
Everything in Toronto is about MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!!!!!!!

This is exactly why there are so many female college students prostituting themselves for MONEY...but NO...blame it on the men! and criminalize the purchase of adultsex services! F-U-C-K You Toronto, I hope Russia beats the living daylight out of these Toronto femiNazis who post that their s-h-it is cleaner than Moscow WTF? Nobody f-u-c-ks around with Russia...
#Tom Tom on Feb 03, 2015 :
If you can't get laid in Toronto, I am sorry but you just flat out suck. Women in Toronto are refined women, modern women with the ability to sense a loser from one who doesn't treat her like an object.
#Toronto Women Suck on Feb 03, 2015 :
Toronto women suck. They are misandric, money hungry and psychologically ill witches. They should burn in hell for their misandric ways. F'u;c'k Toronto.
#Dr.Phil Show on Feb 02, 2015 :
There is something horribly wrong with Toronto. You have a school board which promotes deviant sexuality to Kindergarten students, post secondary institutions promoting radical feminism, and a disgusting support for Gay Pride culture, which one TDSB Trustee and even former Mayor Rob Ford tried to boycott.

Toronto is good if you're a white woman, gay or some other deviant sexual creature.
#Heldae on Feb 01, 2015 :
Boreonto & Elmer Hound you hate Toronto because you are the sheep. Scientists has discovered that the DNA of men in Toronto have inferior genes as compared to to women in Toronto.

Women in Toronto have higher education, earn higher salaries, have bigger butts and cleaner bodies than the counterparts in foreign nations.

Toronto women have STANDARDS and the women know that God gave them a hot body so that men like yourselves can dream on, because if you can't find love in Toronto, you will never find love anywhere else.
#Elmore Hound on Feb 01, 2015 :
The best city in the world? Are you f'n kidding?
The best city in the world for what exactly. Any dummy who's never lived anywhere else can say that with such ease. Toronto is a city of sheep who need desperately to be told what to like because they don't know what is actually genuine. The heart of Toronto is a cash register. I will give some positive kudos however and that is in the greatest variety of restaurants in the world. Truly no competition there. We are spoiled in that sense. But as regards traffic, construction zoning and the ridiculous love affair with the most archaic form of transportation- the Streetcar! This city fails tremendously.the people that say Toronto is the best city in the world may have 'traveled' but they rarely have ever actually 'lived' anywhere else. Love on you blind little sheep.
#boreonto on Jan 31, 2015 :
Um excuse me, just take a look at this website and comments! It's hardly the best city. A "best city" is one that is functional and has a spirit and life. And just look at the insanely high number of blogs and websites on the internet (yes, WORLD wide web)that are full of bad thoughts and reviews about Toronto. That is a huge sign. Something is wrong with the place.
#Best City on Jan 31, 2015 :
Toronto is the world’s best city to live in, according to a study of major metropolises by The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Shows how much hate the haters have for the world's best city. The women in Toronto have standards and class unlike the desperate malnourished women in 3rd world countries.
#Roger on Jan 30, 2015 :
Canada's economy is collapsing due to falling oil prices & yes, toronto women are terrible as thhe falling economy of Canada.
#Protect your kids on Jan 29, 2015 :
One of the sex-ed instructors at a high school in Toronto also taught a class on sex toys at a nearby shop. An article about her sex shop appeared in the Toronto Star.

Some of the parents felt that the Toronto District School Board, an organization that anticipates to teachSexual Education classes to Grade 1 students, was actually encouraging their children to start having sex by turning a blind eye on the explicit content and pornographic nature of the Sexual education curriculum for elementary school students.

The modified Sexual Education program was compiled by accused child molester and child porn maker Dr. Benjamin Levin, a former Deputy Education Minister in Ontario and close friends of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
#Clark Kent on Jan 29, 2015 :
To Vanessa,

I think you might have misunderstood my post.
I'm not saying it is difficult to get a girlfriend here or to survive.
I'm saying the cost-benefit ratio of living in Toronto does not add up for an ambitious young man who doesn't have a minority niche (or government subsidized niche) to fall back on. Even if I had a girlfriend here, living in this city just does not add up for a guy like myself. And apparently many other young men feel the same way.

It is not that I don't have girlfriends. It is that I don't want to live here anymore.
The social culture, dating culture, depressing weather, precarious economic situation, and the fact that we mass-immigrate foreigners through false advertising just gives me the impression that there might be better places for me to live.

Also, as you yourself just demonstrated, the women here have more faith in the government than they do in the people (particularly the men) around them. Canada recently just passed a law that makes the purchase of sex illegal, but still legal to sell it. Gradually gradually the laws are consistently changing and making being a male here more and more risky with lower-incentive.

The only guys I know who do well here are either guys who go 100% after money, or guys who act like clowns and have a social life at the expense of long-term stability. Other than that, females, LGBTQ, and people with ethnic niches do ok... but for guys like myself, and landing immigrants Toronto offers a mediocre at best quality of life.

And finally, I don't call women sluts... the women here call the other women sluts... In fact it is women who created the Slut-Walk...

If you're having trouble getting men to commit in this city, I bet it is because the risks of relating with women are constantly getting higher and higher. Like the other posters have said, this is very similar to Cultural Marxism, which eventually allows the government to become involved in all the most basic human interactions. This kind of life is just not appealing to men... And most ethnic groups with their own culture keep to themselves because there is no unified Toronto identity to become a part of... Most traditional cultures that come here reject feminism... but they aren't as well-off economically as the white women here.

If you can prove me wrong then please do, but this is my current perspective.
#Vanessa on Jan 28, 2015 :
All of the guys posting on this (and Clark Kent) sound absolutely pathetic. I agree with PM Stephen Harper that the age of consent should be raised to 25 so that men will not exploit women under 25.

Not all girls are down for casual sex, especially since we know you will call us “sluts” or “easy” for just having a one night stand. Most women want a relationship (gasp!) and actually like to get to know a person away from the alcohol and loud music of a club.

If you really want to impress a girl or have a chance of getting to be with her ask for her number and tell her you want to go for breakfast the next day, or out for dinner. This way she knows you aren’t a total sleazeball just looking for a quick lay. The anus of a white Torontonian female is cleaner than the air you breathe.
#Clark Kent on Jan 28, 2015 :
I am a Toronto-native white-male with Mediterranean roots. Tall, good-looking, and well-educated.

This city is great if you are gay, female, or a guy who doesn't care for dating at all.

But if you are a fun-loving man who wants to live a good balanced life take these things into account.
Toronto is far too politically correct for real intellectual or spiritual innovation. You'll be holding yourself back from speaking common sense a lot of the time.
If you live-to-work and you don't need basic human connection, then this is a great place for you. But if you are a person with community values and you live for more than just buying things and keeping to yourself, this might not be the best place for you.

Feminism is the dominant mentality here and the city is very expensive to live in. For women, certain minorities, gays, and LGTQ it is great, and the women hold the majority of the public sector jobs (i.e, education, health, government administration, etc.). The public sector jobs however seem like the only real opportunity for financial stability though unless you go into finance. Everything else is minimum wage.

I'm trained as a scientist but am leaving this city later this year because there is just no place for scientists. If you have an independent and entrepreneurial spirit than this is not the place for you. You will always be struggling.

After realizing how many well-educated immigrants come to Canada expecting a future as promised, only to be stuck living in shitty apartments, I've lost some respect for this country. The economy depends way too much on immigrants and the life-savings money they bring. I'm talking about close friends here, not hypotheticals. Upward mobility is very difficult to attain here.

Dating here is god-awful. The social culture does not make up for how expensive and physically run down this city is. The dating culture basically boils down to having money or not having money. Because all the women here hold all the public sector jobs, they have more money than the majority of the men here. Sorry to say, but women are typically not attracted to men who have less social status than they do... it forces the men here to either become money obsessed or behave like clowns and join the leftist feminist regime to fit in.

People here mostly stick to their own background cultures (i.e., Filipinos stick with Filipinos, Russians with Russians, etc.). I am friends with all of these groups but I feel like there is no culture for white-guys here unless you want to join the feminist cult. None of these other cultural niches buy into that bullshit nearly as much as the white-girls of Toronto.

Most of the engineers, scientists, hard-working natives that I know are leaving for the US once they finish their educations... Toronto just doesn't offer enough for the aspiring middle-class to buckle down here and create anything...
#Stop the TDSB on Jan 28, 2015 :
The Toronto District School Board is about to sexualize very young children in their pedophile agenda.

“Teaching six-year-old children to consent to sex is abhorrent,” he said. “The Institute for Canadian Values has fought Premier Wynne’s radical sex education initiative for years. On behalf of the 105,000 members and parents across Ontario who defeated this in 2010, the president speaks out against the latest announcement to start teaching Grade 1 children how to give sexual consent.”

McNaughton, MPP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, said: “I believe this thing is signed, sealed and just isn’t delivered yet and a lot of people feel there is a hidden agenda” and “the parents should be the first educators.”

McVety said, “We abhor the premier announcing that Ontario’s teachers will be forced to teach little children how to give permission for that child to engage in sex” and “I don’t think it is legal to advise a child before the age of 16 on how to give sexual consent.
#Puritan on Jan 27, 2015 :
The University of Toronto is the fastest-growing university in Canada for signups, with 195 students joining in 2014.

Urick said rising tuition, living costs, and low wages for young graduates all contribute to the website's growing success. Most four-year university graduates in Canada will leave post-secondary with more than $10,000 in debt.

"A lot of girls maybe would have foregone college if they hadn't seen this as an option. Just because it's not really accessible," Urick said.
#Employer on Jan 27, 2015 :
Okay, the only way to get a job in Toronto is if you have connections or if your mommy gets you one.
Either that, or you can get some crappy job in about 6 months time while sending in about 100 resumes.

Sad thing is this is a type of job that requires no experience. Most of the really good jobs are non-existent. Sound familiar?

It is just like what you call dating life in Toronto. You have to bend over backwards to pick up some ugly feminist in Toronto.

Roosh V said hot women are inaccessible, it is just like that with jobs. Everyday, people move out to the USA because of that.

Toronto women are like cockroaches, a bunch of Marxist pests who walk on the streets naked and then complain to the police that men are staring at them.

Your economic and social life will be miserable in Toronto.

As a matter of fact, I'm planning to leave Toronto in 5 years. I see no future in this city except for feminists, Marxists and gays.
#Suzie on Jan 26, 2015 :
coomment and repsonse to leon,

you are having a pessimistic experience in Toronto because you don't respect women. So what if a female teacher wants to dress in a low cut top to school? Why don't you teach men not to r_a_p_e women? A woman's dress is not her consent.

Chaunvinists and losers such as you guys will never live a happy life anywhere. If you don't respect women in Toronto, you will never get respect anywhere. Mark my word and heed my advice.

Toronto is the best city in the world to live in.
#coooooment on Jan 26, 2015 :
So true, such a bad city to live in. Bad for raising children. Not to mention fu**ed up winters, just look the weather forecast for Toronto, it's at least -20 degrees celsius.
#Response to Leon on Jan 26, 2015 :
Leon, you will have better opportunities in Montreal or Vancouver for jobs.

15 Reasons why Toronto’s culture and Toronto women are the worst in the entire world

1) Eye contact is taboo. I’m not referring to the creepy Romeo eye stalking. Even inadvertent eye contact such as crossing the street or a quick glance can become burdensome to the average Toronto women. Sometimes one might have to cross the street without looking or drive through an intersection without looking, because getting hit by a car is far safer than getting into confrontation with a Toronto woman.

2) Feminism is a religion in Toronto. With colleges such as the University of Toronto and Ryerson University promoting radical feminism throughout the country, feminism causes many of these women to hate men. Many women prefer to be lesbians, which brings on to point number three.

3) The education system in the Toronto District School Board is perverse. With the Ontario government implementing an explicit Sexual Education program which has little to do with abstinence and more about teachers talking dirty to students, expect more feminism and LGBTQ culture to increase in Toronto.

4) Toronto women prefer an office career rather than nurturing a home. This might have to do with the high cost of living in Toronto.

5) Many 19-25 year old female college students in Toronto ply in the underground sex trade as sugar babies for older men who are called sugar daddies. This is despite the fact that Canada is a welfare state and panders to the needs of women.

6) Women in Toronto label every man as a predator unless proven otherwise. If a 18 year old male proposes to a 40 year old cougar, the 18 year old male is labeled as a sexual predator despite the woman being 22 years his senior.

7) This is how women in Toronto play a victim status. It does not matter if a woman in Toronto initiates a divorce, hits her husband, abuses children or anything else illegal, the woman is always the victim.

8) Many women in Toronto act in a sisterhood gang form of way. For example, if one woman complains about a man, the entire community knows. This is dangerous for men because one false allegation can ruin and destroy his career and livelihood.

9) Manginas and white knights prevail in Toronto. Manginas and white knights will do anything to pander to women in Toronto. Manginas and white knights will even go against you at work, etc just to please a woman.

10) The dating scene in Toronto is terrible because Toronto women prefer a famous rockstar over a doctor or lawyer. Unless of course, the Toronto woman can leech off from his money or confiscate half of his assets in divorce court.

11) Experts such as Roosh Vorek admitted that Toronto women have a negative, scary vibe to them.

12) Toronto women promote sluthood and public nudity, but they get offended if they think a male is staring at them even inadvertently.
13) Did I say that feminism is a religion and that most of the teachers are feminists? Toronto is an incubator for feminist tyranny.
#Leon on Jan 26, 2015 :
Hi, I read most of the comments and it seems like Toronto is not a good place for an immigrant to move too. So can anyone please tell me where in Canada will be a good place to live or at least a good starting point?
#Carl on Jan 24, 2015 :

#signs on Jan 23, 2015 :
Judging by the postings for this city - the people sound very messed up and it's a put off on Toronto.

No other city I have come across has such unpleasant and disturbing postings.

I no longer wish to come ... there's something not good about this place...
#Stacy on Jan 22, 2015 :
This is where the haters have it wrong. If you don't respect women or work hard, how will you be a good employee?

The anus of a white woman in Toronto is cleaner than the air in Moscow and Beijing, so your hatred towards women in Toronto is a sign that you are mentally disturbed.

Why cast blame on an entire gender of women just because you are lazy to rise to the challange? Women in Toronto have been oppressed by the male dominated society for thousands of years, and now women have bigger butts, hotter bodies and higher education and men hate women. You misogynists should live in some ISIS dominated country, or maybe the men who hate women in Toronto are ISIS fans?

Men who hate women in Toronto are no different than the ISIS terrorists in the Middle East.
#The Chosen One on Jan 22, 2015 :
Pat below me is right.

Because Canadians have little to no social lives outside work, they will desperately cling onto their positions for as long as humanly possible.

Many nurses aged 65 + refuse to retire, choosing instead working because if they stop working, the sad fact is.... you're dead.

This is the way Canadian society works. You stop working, you're dead. No one knows about you, no one cares. Doesn't matter if you're a professional, an ordinary Joe, a teacher, a scientist.

Every member of Canadian society secretly DREADS retirement. You cannot sit in a home or apartment at 65 + in solitude and stay normal. NO ONE WANTS THIS.

Just a symptom of a sick, sick society that values exploiting youth, hard work, and small pay.

The older workers will do ANYTHING to cling onto their positions. Young nurses have nothing to do but wait until they literally drop dead on the job to take their shifts.
#Pat on Jan 21, 2015 :
Not even Health Care is a safe bet anymore in Toronto (or all of Canada). The money and funds are mismanaged like in every other area too - be it education, infrastructure, agriculture, etc. So many nursing jobs in Toronto are now part-time or no position at all. It is known that many in health care in Toronto are working two jobs to get by. That is inexcusable.
#Enes Custovic on Jan 21, 2015 :
Toronto is a difficult place to make a living.

Manufacturing does not provide job stability or much upward career mobility. People can easily get stuck making 20-25 dollars per hour their whole lives.

Health care is booming and is one of the few stable prospects for young people. Nursing is respected thanks to the nurses' unions and their vocal leaders who negotiate with the government all the time and advance nurses' causes.

Sadly, Toronto is not the city many envision it to be from a distance. The people are usually very stoic and unemotional. They work long hours and work is all they live for.

A vast majority of them work in retail, soul crushing jobs that break wills.

If you want to move here, think long and hard about what kind of a life you have versus what kind of a life you WILL have.

If you are an immigrant that is doing okay in their home country, you should not move here for career prospects.

If you are an immigrant that is a refugee, burned down home, nowhere to return to, the most destitute of all, then you will love Toronto.

Toronto is for the type of immigrant that does not have hot water in their home country to take a shower everyday. That kind of immigrant. Any European types will immediately recognize how inferior Toronto is to any major European city.

First of all, the Toronto subway system is terrible, covering a small amount of the city with only two lines. One goes up the other goes sideways.

The highways are congested and intolerable, you can quite literally break a wheel if you're not careful driving through the city.

The bus transportation is so miserable, the people using it are not respected at all. Frequent delays, people shoving, small buses, late arrivals.

The people on this site bash the women, but they are victims of the system. Do not bash the women, they are gentle souls that have been victimized by any man they come across in their lives. Canadian men have no morals, no values at all. Most of them have no grasp of the concept of monogamy.

This is not a Christian city. It's an atheist, liberal haven. If you want to have a social circle of Torontonians, you have to conform to their ideals. Luckily there are so many immigrants you don't have to socialize with Canadians at all if you so desire.

I am twenty five years old and I am only now waking up from a long slumber. I turn to my left, I see the homeless. I turn to my right, I see a businessman carelessly driving his new Mercedes Benz on credit.

This is a deeply, deeply inhuman city. The people are so far apart from each other it's unreal. You might get some warm places like Bloor west village, but for the most part, it's every man for himself.

Am i bitter about this city? No, I am not bitter. My parents chose to come here when I was 9 years old, I had no say.

However, to this day my father regrets coming here. Choose Sweden, choose Germany, choose Switzerland if you can.

Choose places where hard work is appreciated, not where you will be embarrassed and humiliated for doing "petty jobs".

I want to re emphasize the point made on women here, they are victims of the liberal system. Many, many single thirty somethings are coming to the realization that they may never have a partner to procreate with and they are very bitter individuals. Don't bash the women.

back on point.

There are two major highways serving the city. Both run parallel to each other. The 401 and QEW are hard to use on a daily basis. Expect to do a lot of driving though.

The cost of gas has gone down recently because of the Saudis decision to destroy the competition.

Honest to God, I would describe this city as the following. If you have connections, just like anywhere else in the world, someone to take you by hand and sit you down into a nice office and guarantee your job stability, you will be fine.

If you, Lord forbid, are trying to make it on your own. You are coloured? Accent? No good.

There are loads of great jobs that never get posted online, but are only posted in businesses.

Prepare yourselves if you want to come here. Fun time is over.

I'm a 19 years old girl and i moved to toronto last year with my parents . The coat of living is so much in here and i feel i am done with my life and this country ! Back in my country my dad was a doctor and Canada keeps requesting for doctors all over the world to come here and when we do there is nothing to do! They don't let my dad to work here as a dr and he is working in a freaking factory ! And for me , i was living like a princess back home but now i'm going to an expensive college and working two shifts to just afford living here because my family can't support me anymore! So u know what? If u are even considering coming to Canada and you have young kids, think about how their life would change and i even have friends in the same situations that became strippers! To provide for the family . So be careful. NO MONEY , NO FUNNY

People in Canada are like ants, their every single day is the same, just go to work, go home, go to work, go home, go to work, go home ..... people are obsessed with work. Bad health care, very little vacation time, very bad winters that last almost 7 months, no good paying jobs, on the other side there is a lot of minimum paying jobs and if an immigrant is gonna be working for minimum wage, it's just better to stay in your home country, property prices are huge, high income and property taxes, high car insurance, shitty food etc. Once you become the part of the "system" it's hard to get out.
Lived in Toronto for 4 years and seen enough. There is a saying: "People in North America live to work and people in Europe work to live". So much better life style in Europe, if anyone thinks to immigrate to Canada, my advice would be choose some country in Europe or Australia. North America sucks. If you don't believe, go check it out yourself :) .... that much from me ....

Everything is expensive in Toronto! A city where you work like a horse to feed the elite conservative class, the government class and the welfare class!

people who dont agree with the high entitlement of women in Toronto should go to a starbucks near UofT and see all the princesses returning lattes that weren’t made right, and quite angry about it too. OK i’ll admit it, I go to Starbucks, i just like their coffee.

But one thing I noticed on a daily basis is just how many princesses return their coffees and lattes at the many Starbucks around UofT. In my personal opinion, I think Starbucks makes it pretty much the same every time and they are very consistent with their food and beverages.

Well the storey sounds silly but it it a simple example of how demanding women in Toronoto are. The women think that they are Goddesses and Its just a small thing, but this is a great example because anyone can go to one of those Starbucks and see it for themselves.
