Re: Chicago Tribune Gives Canada a Shout Out

said by Gone:

Chicago and Toronto may as well be twins separated at birth. This isn't surprising.

Careful now, visiting Chicago is actually fun.

Yes. But I remember the highway in and out being a parking lot (back in 2003).

... and if you aren't Canadian, visiting Toronto is fun, too

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.

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.

The reason for that is quite simple - people don't go "downtown" to have fun in Toronto.

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.

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.
