#Mr Beastly on May 23, 2015 :
I regard women as human toilets as that's about all they are good for , point in question the femnazis that are posting on this forum about '' stare rape'' LOL.. what next '' thing rape'' LMFWAO
#Andrew on May 22, 2015 :
Toronto is overhyped as a city. Yes I agree, the women in Toronto do seem to be terrible and bitter
#Toronto women suck on May 21, 2015 :
Women in Toronto suck.

They are stuck up, filthy rude and obnoxious wh_res.

Toronto is the worst city in Canada to be a male.
#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
#toronto vs calgary on May 20, 2015 :

#Anonymous on May 20, 2015 :
You should not judge a woman by the way she dresses. If a woman wants to walk on the streets topless, you should respect her decision to do so.
#Toronto #1 on May 19, 2015 :
Toronto is the greatest city in the world. There are plenty of jobs, the salaries are great and the lifestyle of Toronto is world class. Better than New York City, London and Paris.
#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 :
Toronto canada the best country in the world , I think it's heaven ,very quiet and sweet country ,u can be anything u want as long u put your mind to it,u can be 60 years old and still make it here,that's amazing country. I love it, women's there so sexy ,they smell good and look .treat them nice and be sweet to them ,and they won't hate u,if u can't get along with a female than u should live with animals in the zoo lol.
#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.
#Watch dogs on May 07, 2015 :

Toronto is #1 for a reason, and anyone who belittles our women should be criminally charged with inciting hate speech (cough) Pat and others

# 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. The Toronto Police Services should monitor this forum to find out who are Clark Kent, Pat and Leave Toronto because their misogyny is disturbing. Women in Toronto are the finest in the world
##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.

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.

#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.

#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.

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.

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.

#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 :

#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.

#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 :

#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.

#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

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!

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.

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.

#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.
Cheers.

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.

#Toronto the Cold on Feb 24, 2015 :
As a rule, I have found Toronto to be an angry, cold city with miserable women.

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.
