Out of all the crappy franchise coffee out there, Tim's is the only one I find drinkable. Their donuts have changed over the last 20 years though, no longer edible, whatever grease or fat they use now, is disgusting. -- ~ Project Hope ~

Maybe it's different in your area, but I find even McDonald's coffee superior to Tim's. Tim's coffee always makes me think of what the water in a mud-puddle would taste like if you warmed it up and put some sugar in it.
Cannot speak on McDonalds, I never go there. Starbucks makes me want to vomit, DD is just as bad. I actually like the coffee served in US Mobile gas stations, not bad, "Green Mountain" brand I believe? -- ~ Project Hope ~
Any one watch the series Boss ? It was a fantastic show , I only wish they would continue with further episodes. In the second season Chicago Mayor Tom Kane visited Toronto for experimental treatment to relieve the onset of a horrible dementia.
Chicago is a cool city, I need to get back there again for a visit
I've been a few times over the years, I've never witnessed that (lucky I guess). I do remember thinking the big rig drivers were absolutely insane, for the high speeds /tailgating they were doing. Massive freeway, everyone going at least 75mph. -- ~ Project Hope ~
Last time I visited, I clearly remember being "downtown" at 10pm on a weekend night wondering if there was a mandated curfew... I thought I went to Ottawa by mistake. I'll hush now. -- ~ Project Hope ~
Played at the El macombo, the horseshoe, (this was in the nineties), my memory is fading.... I did have a nice visit. Probably not technically downtown, hence the quotes, not sure what it's called. People traffic seemed to be missing. -- ~ Project Hope ~
Toronto did once have the reputation of rolling up the sidewalks at night, but that was a long time ago. Back then there was even a law requiring gas stations in the city proper to close at 6 pm to discourage evil cars from entering the city. Things change, though much of city council is still nuts.
Gee....nowhere in DKS's post or the article did I see Toronto mentioned. Canada yes, Toronto no.
What's your point, FaxCap? Toronto and Chicago have had close ties between each other for a very long time. Hell, their geography is even similar. The fact that Chicago likes Canada is not surprising considering that they have always had a very close relationship with Toronto.
In case you didn't know, Toronto is a Canadian city and will continue to be no matter how much that may tick you or anyone else off. (Likewise, BC isn't always the first thing that comes to an American's mind when they think of Canada, either)
Not only is Toronto a Canadian city, it's probably the most typically Canadian of all our major cities -- diverse, tolerant, and with a balance of business and entertainment. Montreal is wonderful but for many reasons is totally unique, Vancouver is afflicted by whatever is trapped in the air between the Rockies and the Pacific that makes them the way they are, and most other cities just reflect regional characteristics, the way Saskatoon will always be Prairie Town and Calgary, Oil Town. -- "The promoters of the global economy see nothing odd or difficult about unlimited economic growth or unlimited consumption in a limited world." -- Wendell Berry
Not only that, but almost three-quarters of Calgary's head offices are energy companies, mostly oil and gas. Toronto not only has twice as many corporate head offices, but they are more diversified. -- "The promoters of the global economy see nothing odd or difficult about unlimited economic growth or unlimited consumption in a limited world." -- Wendell Berry
