I recently came across a very interesting book called '1000 Places to See Before You Die' by Patricia Schultz and although I'm not sure whether or not Toronto Island made her list, it certainly should be there. In early August a friend and I decided to sail over to Toronto Island and spend a few ...

And so it continues. Or maybe it has ended. Toronto has always had this big city - small city syndrome. Are we world class or not? Do they love us or hate us?Well, it seems that Toronto doesn't need the NFL. The CFL and the NLL (lacrosse) will do just fine for the folks at Hasbro. Toronto, as wel...
