I just saw a video of crazy teens eating in the downtown area. They committed a series of chewing while damaging vegetables and busting every watermelon they could find. And this isn't Kensington. We are talking about the high-end tourist area.

That's why Canadians need food. You'll end up dead if you don't eat any.

LOL...this dish is called poutines and it is French fries with cheese curds and gravy, the gravy being hot enough that it melts the cheese making a most delicious snack, or side dishee!

My first 20 years in Western Canada i never saw poutine on a menu or heard of anyone eating it. We had fries with gravy. That's the closest. It seemed an Eastern thing and indeed, i first encountered it in Ontario, then in Montreal, the best tasting in Windsor, across the river from Detroit.

The best butter tart i ever had was in T.O., though.

You youngsters and your poutine. Back in my day growing up in the backwoods of rural Canada we didn't have such cosmopolitan cuisine as "poo-teen." We had to make do with French fries with gravy and cheese curds instead.

Sometimes I feel as if Im picking on you, but youre just a walking fountain of misinformation.  Locals dont say To-ranna. Its only said by Torontonians exaggerating and mocking the way other people mispronounce it. And its Ta-ranna.  My dad and uncles use that one still. Native Torontonians or English speakers that have lived there a long time say Toronto with the last T  hit so lightly it sounds like Toronno to outside ears.

I spent a year in Toronto doing grad school research at the U of T library. My apartment was directly across the street from the house Ernest Hemingway lived in. I went to one of Prince's concerts (5000 venue). I asked two questions of Allen Ginsberg after a speech he gave weeks before he suddenly died. I heard "To-ranna" a lot then, unlike the pronunciation i heard for my first 20 years on the West coast. ... No one ever said "Tor-on-to" as American media, movies and tourists have.

It's like "New Orleans".

Sorry but this is absolute nonsense and I feel you're letting the soju do the talking instead of your heart because deep down you know (like the rest of us do) that it's either "Tonto" or "Doronto" (but never Dorito!) and nothing else.

Of course, maybe you are not a native English speaker then I guess what you are saying makes sense to your ears.

Silent 't'.

An arrested Soviet agent in 1998 was deported after saying he was from Calgary but pronounced the 't'. Peter Gzowski talked about it on CBC radio (before Radio 1, 2... others were invented).

A whole year?  I was only born there to parents that were born there to two grandparents that were born there. The other two were southern Ontario born.And then I grew up and lived there.  You clearly dont know Toronto well. No native Torontonians say Toranna.

You have demonstrated your ignorance of the city before when you again brought up the totally uninteresting fact about living across the street from the apartment Hemingway very briefly stayed at while he was a European correspondent for the Toronto Star.  You said it was located by Bloor and Bathurst. I corrected you that it wasnt located there at all but at Bathurst and St. Clair. You then did your usual thing where you try to gloss over your mistake by falsely claiming you mixed up two B streets. But you clearly mixed up a B and an S street. Amazes me that a guy your age cannot admit his mistakes.  Do you have a Hemingway biography on order to verify his address?   

Dont just grow old Van, grow up.

*sigh*

Not Bloor and St. Clair,... just north of Bathurst & St. Clair, two kilometers north of Bloor, just east of the Italian and Filipino neighborhoods.

It's so uninteresting that no one has bothered to vandalize the big sign that states it was the residence for Hemingway. But you seem earnest.

Yes, Your original post where you made the error is there for anyone that wants to bother looking for it. Or in your mod days did you delete it?   Dont try and pretend youre correcting me. You do know Hemingway lived in the building for about three months, right?  Unless you lived in his actual unit its nothing anyone would keep referring to.  Although I appreciate your pun.

Italian neighborhoods.  You really need to stop pretending you know Toronto. The nearby Italian neighborhood is well known for having Italian businesses on St. Clair owned by Italians that live in Woodbridge.  Its a very Jewish neighborhood where his former brief residence is located.
