The 20 worst smells in Toronto

Like any city, Toronto is home to a wonderful range of smells - good and bad. There's nothing like a hot summer today to elevate bad smells to a whole new intolerable level. For every pocket of the city that smells like something you'd like to bottle - the strong scent of cookies on O'Connor Drive near the Kraft cookie factory and bubble gum around the Oak Leaf Confections plant on Comstock Road come to mind - there are notorious foul smelling areas like the abattoir near King and Bathurst or the Nitta Gelatin plant near Bloor and Landsdowne.

Earlier today we polled our Twitter followers and asked them to suggest the smelliest places in Toronto. Here's a selection of the responses.
