Yeah Toronto is a real head-scratcher man
Been on a job search literally for a year at this point
How the hell does a Masters level educated person get a job that pays the rent here?
#Adam on Jan 17, 2019 :
@Dante: Toronto feminists are rejecting male applicants for even dead-end jobs, as some have alleged here.

Toronto Feminists are waging economic war on men that even getting a $14/hr job is out of the picture. They are doing this to attack men. Toronto defies economic, moral & social sense.
#Dante on Jan 17, 2019 :
If you don't come with a million dollars, you will need to find a way to make that crazy amount of money for a dump you will have to renovate. A "good job" will pay 3,600 a month, once they deduct all those fun things for the future. They will take 2600 for a bed bug free apartment near to work, minus 500 a month for a car, minus 100 for internet, minus 200 for utilities, minus 100 for phone, you are looking at 25 dollars a week for food, no entertainment. Prepare to eat potato sandwiches.
Or else, you can get enough work to pay for stratospheric mortgages. That means you will need 4 full time jobs. Not enough hours in a day.

@Anonymous That's the thing.

Thy don't want a man. They want a prince charming.

So... Sucks for them. :)

I know who I am and if that doesn't serve them...

Whatever, they can end in the bargain bin for all I care.
#Adam on Jan 16, 2019 :
Toronto is where you find no love, only a homicidal or suicidal desire because of the toxic culture. The woe-men there are feminist.
#Anonymous on Jan 16, 2019 :
@Whut touches on something -- the main problem around here is that with the amount of fat, dyed hair feminists walking around, the dating pool for straight men is immeasurably shrunk. It's most men competing for the same women (women who, even if slighlty above average attractiveness still have thousands of instagram followers and hyper-inflated egoes). Recipe for disaster.
#Whut on Jan 15, 2019 :
It's always retarded people saying what they want to say, without fearing for any repercursions because they are behind a black computer screen.

Life's short people. Maybe somedays you can wake up dead and not notice it.

Enjoy your life more without creating wars over nothing.

But what I'm saying... I'm trying to appeal to a bunch of fat women who dye their hairs purple or red and a bunch of awkward dudes who keep replying to them.

What a joke.
#Whut on Jan 15, 2019 :
No matter where I go, there is always this shitty debate.
#Union on Jan 15, 2019 :
A very important cost of living, is insurance, car specially. Toronto is particularly costly in this area. I am not sure why numbeo has omitted that, but if they do include it, Toronto would rank much higher as a costly city, specially considering the low wages.
I know people who, for being newcomers, have to pay 450 Canadian dollars a month for car insurance, while making 14 an hour.

On a separate note, Where are the moderators?

The following website lays out very well the reality of living here...
#Albertan on Jan 13, 2019 :
The F-e-m-inist is your enemy. She will falsely accuse you of crimes against her person, and you will get expelled from campus and your job. She will make you homeless and jobless. This is the current gender war of Toronto.

F-e-m-inists are going to push for more anti-male laws, that Marc Lepine would look like a school boy compared to what brave man will fight and combat the fempire of Toronto.
#Anonymous on Jan 10, 2019 :
city is made for woman and wealthy, if your attractive you will have fun social life otherwise toronto will be the worse hell you can ever imagine.
#Ronnie on Jan 10, 2019 :
The high cost of living has affected everyone in a very noticeable way. Those who hoard property are angry that they are not selling as many houses to naive people for fortunes that the dumps they sell would not command in any city where reason still prevails. They have stratospheric expectations, dreaming about meeting not millionares, but billionares, and lead miserably lonely lives.
Then there are those who struggle to scratch a barely tolerable living, giving away most of their salaries to extortionist landlords of transportation costs that in other cities are used for personal growth and entertainment.
Read the comments below, you'll be spending a lot of money to live among angry people who will very likely hate you.
#Dundas on Jan 08, 2019 :
Erin Pizzey did a speech at UofT and declared that Canada is currently the most frightening country she's been to and she has to consume anti-paranoid pills. She must be referring to Toronto, which is worse than her declarations.
Toronto feminists have been cockblocking men into paid work, likely because many MGTOW keep bragging how they will work and save enough to retire in Costa Rica.
At the end of the day, feminists from Toronto will lose the war.
They can't actually be discriminating against young men from paid work and forcing them to sleep on the streets. This is a recipe for disaster and a Yellow Vest revolution.
#Anonymous on Jan 08, 2019 :
Damn, after reading these comments and hearing the complaints from people in real life, maybe there is something to that Roosh article about Toronto being terrible for dating (can confirm too)
#Anonymous on Jan 07, 2019 :

Fuck Toronto feminists!

May God bring Alek Minassian to finish off what he started!

Toronto is a feminist hellhole and shithole for straight males!




#Ralph Welch on Jan 07, 2019 :
Forum Moderators, where are you?

To those theories about Russian bots, the logic is not sound. They would not shoot themselves on their feet, because there are many "investors" who own large swathes of Fort York. I know some of them.

The cost of living in Toronto can spiral out of control very easily, unless you are rich, well connected, and entitled. The average salary does not cover basic rent in a downtown location, and the further you have to commute, the lower your quality of life.

I have attended theater shows, operas, hockey games, baseball, soccer, TIFF, and they were all dissapointments. Yet, they dare to ask for 200 dollars for a hockey game of a team that has not win since more than half a century ago.

This city is like an egomaniac who wants to make-believe it is a heavyweight, when in reality, it's at best a mediocre city. The housing mania is reaching the heights of the tulip mania, and I would like to see all those 25 year old investors (who defend and depend real estate more than they would their own family) find real jobs when the bubble bursts.

Avoid Toronto if you don't have a job that pays 140,000 CAD, and 1,000,000 CAD to buy a sheet rock mcmansion. It is too costly and does not offer much.
#Anonymous on Jan 06, 2019 :
#Lisa Olsen on Jan 05, 2019 :
For those of you reading, disregard the misogynistic comments as they are made by one person, Clark Kent. He's a Russian bot.
#Charlie Wilton on Jan 04, 2019 :
I believe the comments about difficulties with dating/relationships/interaction between the sexes belong more on the quality of life of Toronto rather than in this section, which is about cost.

Toronto was cheap 30 years ago, because the location is horrible. It's a frozen city with almost no quality indoor entertainment during the winter, and over-priced activities during the summer. It is far away from real world class cities like Montreal or New York, where people actually go to for vacation, not here.

There are cleaners who will have a better quality of life than researchers, just because they inherited a house and the costs of owning one are minimal (200-300 dollars a month for maintenance and taxes, as opposed to 2000-2800 a month for rent).

Toronto needs baristas, cashiers, and straw-men security guards, all of them get paid 14/hour. If that is what you want to do with your life, come here with your degrees in engineering, medicine, or science, and live in debt, loneliness and instability. If you develop any kind of addiction or incapacitating disease, you will be sleeping on the streets at -20 Celsius, or being beaten up or killed without anyone taking notice. The hotels are rented for some government approved refugees though, and Centennial college dormitories.

The most important thing is to speak up, tell everyone the reality about this city, it is not worth your talent and it will never compensate your efforts.
#Arthur on Jan 04, 2019 :
Canada is getting worse, that a former Ryerson University student who was arrested because of a feminist doctor has now started a Yellow Vest movement:
I wouldn't cast any judgement on him as he sought medical advice from a female doc at Ryerson, and instead was arrested on campus, sent to a hospital for evaluation, released without charge, and a few days later, the female doc sends her own police, York Regional Police, to arrest the poor fella at his ex-wife's home in Toronto.

His wife divorced him because of the police issues.

Toronto has destroyed men such as Steve Katsikaris, and once they are making men lose everything, they have not a thing to lose, and this results in angry men wearing Yellow Vests.

The comical thing is that many of the normies will accuse Steve Katsikaris of being a Russian bot,incel or virgin, but he was married and how wife let him because of a Toronto femoid doctor who sent police to harass him and his family. His ex-wife feared for her life.
#Clark Kent on Jan 03, 2019 :

I'm just curious if you actually think that the people frustrated with the current trajectory of Toronto, and I suppose more broadly, the West, are all just "Russian bots"

I don't mean to be rude but do people out there actually believe that the Russians created text-messaging web-applications specifically to talk about the problems facing the working and middle classes in the West? And that working class and middle class people simply have no interests or concerns of their own? That without the high-tech intervention of "russian bots", no one would have anything to say?

I've seen people talk about this with relation to the US election but has it not dawned on liberals that there are lots of frustrated people in their countries? Aren't liberals supposed to be the "compassionate" and "educated" ones? How can you guys look at all the economic, social, cultural, and historical problems occurring in the West and conclude that it's all just Russian bots trying to confuse people?

All those university graduates with 40k in student loan debt and no job... are they all just Russian bots? Like seriously is this the level liberals are operating on?
#Anonymous on Jan 03, 2019 :
The level of dissatification with life in Toronto seems to be huge. There isn't a single other city on this site which attracts such (justifiable) negative comments.
#Jamie Lesley on Jan 03, 2019 :
It is no longer the case that you can move to Toronto, find a two jobs, and a quality of life. I am speaking from experience. The wage increases have stagnated for the last 10 years, while the house/rental prices have skyrocketed.
The more you work, the more you are taxed. Infrastructure is decaying, there is a drug crisis so bad that you can see needles on Queen and Spadina's floor, as well as people shooting up.
Employers do not care about workers, workers are easily replaceable (by incompetent new people, but replaceable nevertheless).
There are basements for which no radon testing has been done, that are being rented out for the price of a two bedroom downtown in Montreal. I was looking for a rental recently and was horrified with the stench of the places they were asking 2000 CAD a month for.
If you have two average jobs, you are talking about 80,000 a year, which turns into 3600 a month after taxes and pension and all that. 3600-2000-1000(250 a week for groceries)-150 (public transportation)-150 (Internet and phone)- 500 (clothes, toiletries, entertainment twice a month) and you are looking at borrowing 200 dollars each month to live.
People are lonely and angry. Inequality brings out the worst of mankind, and Toronto was already famous for being filled with mean people.
Everybody is trying to take advantage of everybody. I was renting a place for 10 years, and got reno-evicted in the middle of the rental crisis. No remorse, no loyalty from the landlord.
Daycare costs half of your salary if you happen to have a job, which you will need if you are not a permanent resident. Rent costs the other half. Then you need to struggle to find money to eat.

Don't ruin your life. Don't come/stay in the most unaffordable city of Ontario.
#Anonymous on Jan 03, 2019 :
Toronto is a bland, unexceptional place.

People are generally polite, although very guarded, cold and unfriendly. I have lived in several cities around the world which are bigger than Toronto, and found the people much, much friendlier than here.

Most of my friends here i have met through my wife, who is Canadian. I can imagine that it would be a lonely place for a single migrant.

Cost of living is very high, and you don't get much in return for it.
Hard to get decent work without "Canadian experience". You will find plenty of engineers and highly qualified migrants driving taxis or working in Tim Hortons.

Honestly, if you have any sort of decent life in your home country i would advise against moving here.

I'm leaving in a few months and couldn't be happier to get out.
#Potential on Jan 03, 2019 :
Interesting how astroturfed and one-sided the comments on this site are. I guess the Russian trolls are trying to stir up shit in Canada now, too?
#Josh on Jan 01, 2019 :
@ Garcia Is death the only way for persecuted men to leave Toronto & their terrible and litigious paper terorists masquerading as women? A misandry version of hotel California?
#Logan on Dec 27, 2018 :
Susan, if everyone who isn't as rich as Doug Ford, Justin Trudeau, or John Tory moves out of the city, who will serve your coffee and protect you from the inevitable incel uprising?
The political climate of Toronto is placing men into poverty through reverse discrimination on the job market.

It's only because Trudeau forced companies to hire women, mostly privileged class of Canadian women, that you're here posting anti-poor rants.

It's getting harder and harder to survive in Toronto when one has to earn over $3,000 a month to be called back for an application to rent a slummy apartment.

I wonder what does the government do to homeless men? There are lots of homeless men panhandling in downtown Toronto, but what happens when the police rounds up these homeless men to hide the economic malaise of Toronto?
#Susan on Dec 25, 2018 :
If you’re poor don’t live in Toronto
#Walt Ruthers on Dec 24, 2018 :
Merry Christmas/happy holidays can only be afforded by home owners who extortionate renters out of their livelihoods in Toronto. I'll be working all day, just to pay debt. This city is a debt prison for the working poor, no matter how educated, talented, or skilled you are, you will be accountable for the crime of not being born with a silver homeowner key on your paw.

You work more, they tax you more.

Planning to come here? If you don't have over a million dollars cash, you will regret it and wish Christmas/all other celebrations are over fast, so you don't have to endure them. Mark my words.
#Anthony Souza on Dec 23, 2018 :
"I cannot afford to fly out of this horror even though I worked in a prestigious hospital downtown."

If there was a place on earth where Hell can be described while the devils of gayness and feminism rule with an iron fist, it's Toronto.

Men, think hard before moving to Toronto. It will be too late when you realize how shitty this city is and how fucked up social relations are in this city.

Don't be that homeless man who ends up back in Toronto after hitchhiking past the city boundaries. It could be you once you end up penniless by a feminist policy or feminist accusation that costs you your job &/or freedom.
#Anonymous on Dec 22, 2018 :
Toronto will become the 24th most crowded city in the world ...
The report estimates that Toronto's population will grow to 6,682,061 by 2025. That means the city's population will increase by 59.2% in a single generation. As a result, the amount of people living per square mile in this city will grow to 7,567—in contrast, Toronto had a population density of 4,753 people per square mile in 1995.

Innocent before proven guilty, and you should be allowed to provide evidence to prove your guilt.

Thanks to Canuck feminists, whose fathers make them safe.

Canadian men are screwed. Now ordinarily I would recommend that they buy a tiny camera, but those are now banned too, in the courts at least, along with emails. The feminist judge needs to make sure you don't have a case.

Canadian men, you're screwed.
#Jeanette on Dec 21, 2018 :
Toronto was famous across Canada for having the meanest people. Now, inequality has exacerbated and magnified the rude interactions among people. The rich are angry because the real estate prices stopped climbing 20%. The poor are angry because of the cuts to welfare. The middle is working themselves to the ground trying to afford rent in a crappy, small place with broken elevators, or wasting their lives away commuting.
This city is not worthy of your talent, time nor money.
Entertainment is expensive and kitsch.
Location is bad, as you'll freeze for 6 months or more out of the year.
Neighborhoods are getting worse with gun violence and drug addiction/overdoses.
There is no safety network, one missed step and you are out of the city or on the streets.
There are no friends, if you get sick you are on your own (everyone is too busy or has last minute plans) to drag yourself across the floor and wait for 10 hours in the emergency room.
People literally die alone and no one notices, because everyone is so obsessed about money they prefer it over friendship or relationships, buy money does not take you to the emergency room on its own. A lady died in our building and it was days before they found it. She was mean, and no one cared about her. The government took her apartment. They like it when people are lonely because that means more assets for them.
I will spend Christmas alone because of nasty people who would not approve a vacation, because a new person got hers. I cannot afford to fly out of this horror even though I worked in a prestigious hospital downtown.

#Torontoist on Dec 19, 2018 :
Toronto is like a KIA rio with rolls royce price. Totally overpriced. People look at each other's wallets before looking into their eyes. It is the top city for inequality, traffic, outrageous housing costs, and social issues. This is where you see a man injecting himself drugs in front of a downtown Hilton.

@ Derek:
You can thank feminism and the bankers for turning Toronto into an intellectual slave plantation where no one is allowed to challenge the status quo.

This is why the wealthy elites who sleep soundly in their Rosedale and Bridle Path mansions pay mercenaries like Antifa and Chanty Binx to divide genders because before all of this feminist culture that has taken over Toronto, the alternative social groups were protesting against corporations, the Toronto elite and Canada's version of Occupy Wall St.

Kathleen Wynne, a social liberal of convenience (funding for LGBTQ and feminism while doing austerity on the poor and working class), enacted severe anti-male laws which turned Toronto from the club Mecca of the 90s into a feminist and anti-sex shithole where men and women aren't allowed to party.

It doesn't help the fact that conservative mayor of Toronto, John Tory, a large shareholder of Rogers Media Inc, directed CP24 news to smear the name of PUA activist Roosh V, calling him a "rape promoter" and instilling fear in women that this Moslem vagabond will teach Canadian men how to rape women; how isn't that racism is beyond my comprehension.

Toronto is a city where it's taboo to complain of foreign money launderers, but okay for Toronto women to lie about rape to police and have innocent and law-abiding men charged and locked up in prison for a long time. These same women will not complain if Bronfman or one of the Bay St. elites raped them and murdered their unborn infant a few months after wouldn't they?!
#Derek on Dec 17, 2018 :
Cost of living in Toronto is not justified by the poor quality of life that it offers. No one comes here to party, even the locals who are house poor get out to have fun.
#Anonymous on Dec 17, 2018 :
YOU GO GRRLLLL! If Chanty Binx and the rest of her feminist crew can get this:

Sucks to be a femoid sloot who can afford breast implants while thousands of men are discriminated for jobs because of Trudeau's foreign and feminist policy.

Femoids of Toronto are willing to get CANCER, SICKNESS, AND UNCURABLE DISEASE to entice rich men and young boys!

Toronto womyn and femoids are fucking shit. I pray for the day that the fempire of Toronto collapses, along with CBC funding that demonizes men.

@Brett Lou:
I know what you're sayin.
I attended that uni when that Big Red monster was shutting down mens rights activists.
My life was a living hell there.
One night, I overdosed on opiods at a club, and I felt my self leave my physical body. I was floating from the room, and I thought that I'm finally FREE from this mental BONDAGE of femi-Nazi hell Toronto life.
I felt happiness, joy and freedom from the feminist totalitarian state called Toronto and Canada.
I woke up in a hospital and the angry look on the nurse's face made me wish that I OD'd in the forest during a wind chill warning.
Where am I you ask?
I saved enough cash and left that sick, depraved and feminist gestapo city once I had the chance.
Toronto and Canada are going towards a perverse form of Communism and crony capitalism wearing panties. The future is bleak for young men there.
#Bart Rodgers on Dec 14, 2018 :
Toronto costs more money than what you will be paid for your long hours of unappreciated work. There are so many workers, you can be replaced in a heartbeat, they know it, and they show it.
If you are not here yet, you will need to come with 10,000 usd to start with. You might spend that in four months of living here, if you want to live a little, or in 8 months if you choose a spider infested basement apartment, with no natural light and a horrid smell. Landlords are awful, some of them have no consideration for human rights, and your only choice, is to go live on the streets. They know it, they show it.
All the pretty things cost 10 times more than in the USA. You need a salary like Meng Wanzhou (billionaire with two empty houses in Vancouver before her bail was granted, now she has one empty house in Vancouver).
Save yourself some excruciating pain, get those 10,000 and go to a real world class city or take a nice vacation instead.
#Rude Boy on Dec 11, 2018 :
Read Roosh's post about why Toronto sucks, I believe we have the most members of any other city in the world on this forum. Not one Torontonian has disputed what Roosh wrote, so there is no catch.
There are several threads about Toronto which tell how bad the situation is by people who are living here in the trenches.
The good thing about having a diverse population is that we have many good restaurants which showcase food from all over the world. Toronto is a very multi-cultural city but people generally live in certain neighourhoods with people of a similar background.
As a city Toronto has a great standard of living, the women are spoilt for choice. Men, date down and I would say you need flawless game to get by.
On a personal note, Roosh wrote about how Toronto women think they are cool. I was in a club the other day and some chick was telling me how "cool" she was, I replied that she seemed nerdy. The look on her face was priceless and she stormed off.
That same night I was laughing to myself as I saw these white girls dancing to some Drake song thinking they were cool.
In regards to Interracial couples, in the USA it still seems taboo and they are a bit behind Canada in this regard.
As for moving here, you must be crazy. Even if you can earn great money here it does not seem to matter much, I know guys from all walks of life and they ALL complain about the social aspect. The guys that don't complain are few or either beta chumps that are letting women walk all over them, I know loads of guys that fall into this category.

no idea why people want to come here. Cost of living is high, not just housing and rent but even food too! Average salary is low compare to major U.S. cities. Winter is brutal cold and instead of a beach you get a dirty cold lake. Its too late for me to get out, but save yourself and dont come here!
#Anonymous on Dec 09, 2018 :
It's 3AM and I'm standing at the door of McDonalds HOMELESS in the freezing cold!!!!
I'm at the Yonge St.& Dundas area seeking shelter, but nearly every one is for women and their dogs that they fuck on the down low.

A woman falsely accused me of sexual harassment earlier this year, and I was fired without notice. I can't find a job up to now because not only do employers refuse to hire homeless men, but they are forced by Justin Trudeau to hire women, and the social worker thinks I'm scamming the system when I'M FUCKING HOMELESS and have to watch my ass before a fucking homo tries to rape me!

@ Yuen Wang:
Toronto has completely ruined my life as a straight man.Wome here deny me jobs for factories or general labour.

Justina Trudeau is sending hundreds of millions for feminists, while the taxpayer foots the bills with future austerity cuts.Toronto is the city that is a LIVING HELL.

I'm without a job for 8 months and counting; many of the hiring managers, women, don't want to hire me. This also was the case with some of my friends who lost their jobs in the 2015 recession and up to this day, can't find a job.

Toronto is discriminating against men for feminists.

The Muslim Marc Lepine must have foresaw the consequences of early feminism, which could explain why he murdered those feminists.
#Yuen Wang on Dec 04, 2018 :
Toronto is very affordable, if you have a duffel bag filled with money, like the people in this article:

If you don't, prepare to use your PhD knowledge (regardless of the area of study, Medical Doctor, Engineer, Lawyer) for preparing the most awesome lattes with great artwork. There's an overflow of professionals, so everyone gets a sharp pencil to fend off the others for the lowest salary possible. A great race to the bottom. Underemployment is the new key-word.

Your hard work is needed to pay for the pensions of those who didn't study beyond high-school, retired early, weren't that productive, but now are paper millionaires. Those who don't retire are super-nasty, and immune to the respect and civility courses. One of them said his age gave him the right to be sarcastic and toxic.

Fort York neighborhood is hollowed out by speculators. But don't worry, the government is looking into it. By 2030 they'll do something about it. Toronto will cost you all your income, your energy, your health, and your time. You'll get experience in return, and the beautiful bragging rights of living in this city. That's it.
#Anonymous on Dec 03, 2018 :
My personal reason is that alot of people have been sued or charged for sexual harassment or things like that for approaching a girl. I’ve even heard of people getting charged for just telling a girl she’s pretty. Personally that’s what makes me keep to myself in public. Not sure if this is a reason for most of us in Toronto
#Jason on Dec 03, 2018 :
Toronto. If you don't work a high-paying job that pays at least C$300,000+ annually, do drug dealing and credit card scams, or don't display any signs of affluence, Toronto women, and the majority of them, don't want anything to do with you.

You heard me---If you only approach or try to talk with the banshees you call a Toronto womyn, she will send her hired men in guns such as the police or her pimps to use violence against you.

On one side, Toronto has a culture of corporate mafia culture, and the other side is the criminal elements of drug dealing , pimping organized crime and money laundering; and Toronto womyn only want a white collar criminal or drug dealer as a bf.

#Canada Human Rights Exposed on Nov 27, 2018 :
Notwithstandingly, the Fred Victor staff were concerned about me staying at their shelter and also reporting on their activities. Those complaints that had involved me, directly, I had also reported to the Shelter, Support and Housing Administration and they all went to Brad Boucher, who had so much sided with the corruption of the Fred Victor shelter staff and management, that he also claimed that he had approved them restricting me from its shelters, for longer than six months. Keep in mind that under the Toronto Shelter Standards, restricting a resident from the use of an emergency shelter for longer than three months, required that the moved be approved by those in the Shelter Support and Housing Administration.

Brad Boucher, then as now, acted corruptly to cover up the actions of the Fred Victor Centre staff, who have acted inappropriately, either towards the residents, or in carrying out their duties, as shelter staff.

Fast forward to today, and Brad Boucher is still saying that the Fred Victor Centre is justified in refusing me any assistance, some five years going on six years down the road, for reporting on them, then and also recently. In his email to me yesterday, he claimed that the Fred Victor Centre staff view my ongoing reports about them as harassment and therefore I am being banned from their shelters. And for what now seem as an indefinite period. The problem with this decision is that it goes against Shelter Standards guidelines.

Unless the resident has made a direct threat, or his behavior is threatening in some ways, (that is could caused physical harm to someone), or has been violent towards the staff, then that resident also have a right to use the services of the housing provider, who is also under contract with the City of Toronto (a corporation).

Exercising one's right to freedom of speech by reporting about the staff's inappropriate conduct, should not be viewed as a harassment of the staff. Neither should a resident who has made complaints about Fred Victor Centre shelter staff, be considered as harassing the staff, at the time of the complaints, some six years ago.
#Reliance Desjardins on Nov 23, 2018 :
Great efforts will be made to teach children and their virtue-signaling parents to trust those who are most dangerous to children: homosexuals and transsexuals. In effect, grooming will be institutionalized on a national scale.

A good example is the Drag Queen Story Hour program that has disgusting drag queens read to children in public libraries. The effect of this program, which is funded by taxpayers and globalist groups, is to teach children that sexual deviants are safe and should be trusted. Many parents are actually paying money to increase the chances that their children will be molested.

No wonder Roosh V was viciously smeared in Canada...Toronto is a heaven for feminists, lesbians, trannies, pedophiles and probably they are all child rapists, but if a straight male is accused of offending a woman, it's treated as a crime worse than terrorism. That's Toronto for ya! Homosexual prison state.

You need 225K salary to live well. If you don't have that, think twice.
#Wonda on Nov 11, 2018 :
Men also have to walk on eggshells when working in the office, because if those femoid co-workers complain that a male co-worker made her feel uncomfortable because she was wearing a see-through top for Lil Tyrone after work, a man can lose his job, his career prospects and livelihood over a false and vexatious accusation.

Many companies within Toronto are scared as hell to enforce dress codes to prevent vexatious sexual harassment claims, because the feminist demons have coerced the judicial system to view dress codes as discrimination against women.

As per Rob Carrick, Toronto is expensive and unobtainable. At 2200 for an okay one bedroom, renting is no longer an option to save money, so there's no independence even with a so called "good job". You need two full time jobs, but then again, there's no time left for anything but work, commute, and maybe sleep.

There's also an epidemic of loneliness, driven mostly by stagnating salaries and unchecked greed:

#Frustrated Millennial on Nov 06, 2018 :
Alexis knows what he/she (?) is talking about.

Needing $250,000/year is an exaggeration, but yeah working full-time at minimum wage means you are the working poor, and you better pray that the loans you take out for tuition get you a really good job after all that hard work and suffering you put in (HINT: probably wont). And even if you do get a decent job around $50,000/year, you will still struggle to afford a home, eat well, and start saving for retirement.

I'm a 31 year old man with two post-graduate degrees and I've been unemployed for a year now. I've sent out over 100 applications for jobs, had my resume reviewed by working professionals, published almost 10 academic research papers, had a portfolio that was in the top five of my class, studied under the president of my university, worked manual labour jobs through university to pay off my tuition, and still managed to look out for my girlfriend and family in the process. It was a tremendous grind but I was proud to do it because I thought my hard work would pay off and I was the first person in my family to pursue a post-graduate degree.

So now I'm unemployed and living with my parents at 31. No girl wants to date me despite being educated, good looking, and physically fit. The only job I've been offered was by a friend for some manual labour job in a factory for minimum wage, but with my education I'd like to make more than $35,000/year. I'm going to try some new strategies for connecting with employers, but if things don't start working out within a few months I don't think I'll have a choice but to start a new career path in the skilled trades (e.g., electrician, mason) or perhaps something like nursing, and get out of the city.

The craziest thing is that out of the people I know around my age, I'm actually doing relatively well! I have friends with tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, who are turning to drugs, and who work shitty jobs that are not allowing them to move forward in life.

I'm aware that there are many employed people in Toronto and that there is still a middle-class, but I do feel like I've been scammed and set up for failure despite doing everything I was told. Sometimes I wonder if this entire city just runs on debt and that maybe I'm an idiot for trying to be financially and socially responsible.
#Alexis Barnes on Nov 06, 2018 :

To live comfortably in Toronto, you need 225000 a year. If you don't have not landed a job with that salary, prepare to work until you drop, commute 4-6 hours, and lose sleep wondering how you will be able to save for a 1000000 dump when you can barely pay the interest of credit cards.

According to that article: "The numbers suggest that the city's minimum wage earners still fall short of the basics of life, even with the large hikes the province is implementing this year and next. Once the minimum wage rises to $15 per hour, full-time workers will make $31,200 before taxes, or some $9,000 less than LowestRates' estimate of the basic cost of living."

Why is the City of Toronto "feminist dep't" doing this to censor discussion of feminists and in particular, the Toronto womyn who was found guilty of child pornography? Are the bureaucrats from Toronto protecting a child molester, Dylan McEwen?

Remember what the bureaucrats at Toronto did to PUA Roosh V for hosting a meetrup in Canada? They spread libel. But the same bureaucrats are protecting a convicted baby molester...A feminist-occupied gov't exists in the City of Toronto.
#Jamie Lamb on Nov 06, 2018 :

Toronto is over priced, it is hard to find decent jobs (only place in the world where I met MDs working in call centers), and unless you come with a lot of money, and willing to volunteer indefinitely, impossible to establish yourself. The city does not keep statistics of how many people leave, because the numbers would discourage those who come thinking they will find a place to settle. Look at the numbers above, 4k for a family. The average net salary is 3.5k. You basically need to borrow 500 dollars every month to survive.

Having said that, buy condos! the prices can only go up forever!

Ever checked on an escort ad? As soon as a 20y.o thot posts an advertisement of her butt, she gets 100,000 views in one day. LeoList is one example. The thirst is real in a feminist city such as Toronto.

Many of the women would rather share the top5% of men for themselfs than to be nearby a random man.

Toronto is a hell for men, and it's a no man's land because it's feminist.

I'd wager that 65% of Toronto women are militant feminists, and 99.9% of white women are militant feminists.

What the moderators need to do is to delete every misogynistic comment made by "Wonda", "Clark Kent", "Mexican", "Pat", "Hermann" and others who are presumably the same person.

Hate speech is illegal in Toronto and the Toronto Police should arrest the person who is using several pseudonyms to spread hate against women and the Jewish community.

She, Dylan McEwen only got 6 years for molesting several toddlers? She'll be out before 2020. The Judge was a feminist named Kathleen. Men living in Toronto take note...Feminists are allowed to have sex with toddlers. McEwen was only charged with the child pornography offences.

Hey to those government trolls from City of Toronto and the Simon Wiesenthal Holohoax Centre/Canadian Gooish Federation, I have skillfully archived many of the comments in this thread that you have flagged for deletion to moderators.

People will eventually realize that once in Canada, especially aristocratic and neo feudal cities such as Toronto, one cannot criticize Anglo women, feminists and J-e-w-s openly. Canada doesn't have free speech.

The Simon Wiesenthal Juice however, has allowed comments that target my Latino people, Blacks and Moslems.

For every woman that becomes corrupted by feminist values, there is an Anglo h0ar and a J3w whispering to her ear. J3ws are trying to takeover Mexico BTW.

It's not surprising that Anglo women are on the same aristocratic level and also victim class level as Juice.

The cost of living in Toronto has no Return of Investment for those who rent. It is a neo-medieval city, where housing accommodations take most of your income/effort for surviving in a land that does not offer much. There are no Piazzas like in Italy where people just can sit and enjoy an evening without having to pay somewhere to be somewhere, the touristic attractions are lame and a do once in a lifetime for the check mark kind of thing, and the so called locals isolate themselves in the groups they have known since kinder garden.
