As of New Year's Day 1998, seven became one as six surrounding
municipalities joined the Metropolis of Toronto and newly elected Mayor Mel Lastman to create the
next chapter in North America's model city. Multicultural, cosmopolitan, well planned and
run, this is the city that truly knows how. Toronto is arguably one of the cleanest and
safest Cities in the Americas with a wonderful network of recreational, cultural and
transportation facilities. Toronto, together with New York and London, share not only the
largest summer Carnivals but also the three largest English language theatre districts in
This most livable of cities can
also claim world class status for its Toronto Symphony Orchestra, National Ballet of
Canada, and the Toronto International Film Festival. Don't forget the three world league
sports teams which include the reigning champs of Canadian football, the Argonauts.
Finally, this global city is the first to tell you that Bay street is a better bargain
than Wall Street.

City Web Guides
wears many Canadian crowns, including new media capital, so we like finding so many web
publications in the mold of Carnaval.com's valued added web guide. The long standing paper
of record is the Toronto Star. The Star is a great home-town paper
amidst much competition and more to come as a new daily (tentatively called the Post and
backed by the formidable Conrad Black) is set to go head to head with the Star in the
active daily media market. The Sun is the flagship
of the second largest newspaper chain in Canada but is content to put up circulation
numbers by appealing to the 4-B's: babes, breasts, beasts, and blood.

Toronto is proud to be called "the
best International city to raise a family in." This fresh healthy concern for the

trappings so common elsewhere and is well exhibited by this helpful robust web site.
