Marcanadian's Toronto

I had an ongoing Toronto thread a couple of years ago that I don't think is worth updating, and since I bought a new camera since then I'll entertain you with these photos.

I'll be posting a few photos hopefully daily of some areas around the city. I'll provide some information about each and answer any questions you should have. So enjoy!
