Aviationman, a few comments:
1. This thread belongs in the non-aviation forum
2. Have you been to Toronto? If so, what did you do, and what did you see? Did you come with an open mind? The reason I ask is because while I agree Toronto in general sometimes comes out with an attitude of superiority, it does not mean that it is all like that. I consider it much like how the United States is under appreciated by many folks worldwide. Why? Because they are the most powerful country in the world. Toronto being the most significant city in Canada will obviously get a lot of hatred. What I find is that this comes from people who have never been to Toronto, or who come with a closed mind. This goes both ways too because I know a lot of Torontonians who hate other areas of Canada, yet they have never been to these areas.
3. The "Canada loves Toronto" tagline came from Air Canada in their promotion after their ticket sales were hugely affected thanks to the overblown SARS media coverage. The fact that somebody came up with a website with this title shows pride. Why do you have to look at this in a negative way? Is the YUL
aviation board also "nombrillisme"
? Sounds to me like using your criteria it is.
We are in a country
, and despite regional differences, we should all help eachother out. I'm not asking anything from you other than to view the website with an open mind.
