I Love TO

What do Torontonians love most about their city?

After polling readers on what annoys them the most about Toronto, I need to make good on a promise to write up a counter post. As a number of commenters rightly pointed out, it's nice to balance out the gripes with a little love. I get the sense, however, that this is actually a slightly more difficult exercise.

Although many Torontonians do love their city, it's rare to meet those who proclaim this unabashedly. Instead, what I hear a lot of is "it's complicated." Perhaps it should be. If the populous doesn't have a healthy understanding of the things that are wrong with their city, it'd be near impossible for it to improve over time. And besides, uncritical love is really just fanaticism, which isn't good for anybody.

So here's my list. As always, please feel free to point out what I've failed to include in the comments section.
