toronto on the world monopoly game

Help Put Toronto on the (Monopoly) Map

Come on, Toronto. We know you're online, and that you like voting. Surely you don't want us to end up being the not-so-proud owners of one of the cheapest and least visited properties in the world.

The toy company Hasbro is running a worldwide, online campaign to elect 22 cities for inclusion on the board of their upcoming world edition of Monopoly, and our fine city is in the running - just barely.

--

As it stands, Toronto is just qualifying for a position (currently in position 19 of 22 18 of 22; what would be Vermont Avenue Connecticut Avenue on the regular board). We trail many other cities, including fellow Canadian metropolises Vancouver and Montreal (see the full leader board).

If Toronto really is so hooked on Facebook, so Twittery, all over Flickr, and so bloggerific, why are all of these other cities whipping our butt in the online Monopoly vote?

We have until the end of February to up our rank. You can vote for Toronto once every day. Use your spam-friendly email account.
