@ christos-greece: Yes buddy, that picture is in Toronto's TTC subway system.

@ Grey Towers: Oh, wow, didn't know that! Thanks for the trivia!! But how come they didn't quoted or credited him? Or maybe it's general knowledge and I'm the only one who didn't know! Hehe

I don't know why he wasn't given the citation, but the quote's from a few years ago when Paul Martin was in power. If I remember correctly, Bono visited and got some kind of commitment that Canada would earmark .7% of its GDP for aid to developing countries, as per a 1992 G7 summit in Rio. Never happened.

Perhaps some non-famous person said the same thing decades ago, but we will never know. Quotes only become famous, if someone famous says it.

@ Siopao: Thanks very much!! Oh, so you live in Norh York, some of my pictures lately were taken from uptown (which is beautiful too and has its own charm, together with west and east Toronto) because I'm trying to diversify the pictures since most of the time, T.O. photos everywhere are from the downtown core. Thanks again!

@ Taller, Better: Hi T,B! Thanks again! And yep, I like his avatar too, haha, I gotta get an animating avatar also lol

@ rychlik: Hello rychlik! I think they were moved somewhere. Under Toronto, there is a thread where everyone post Toronto pictures. But I've seen your Toronto thread, it's really good! Maybe you could move that one here in Urban Showcase because they are your own photos. Just a suggestion.

@ Grey Towers: Okay, thanks for the information. I believe in the quote though, not actually in aiding or any financial means but in other aspects.

@ isaidso: Hi there! Yup, might be!

Another nice one. I love the spontaneity of the people. It's a picture of immobility, yet you captured the leg swinging of the children in the background.

@Grey Towers & MarkHerz

I can't believe you guys think "The World Needs More Canada" quote is from Bono. He said it at the Liberal Convention at the ACC when Paul Martin became leader. However, that quote has been part of Indigo's spiral staircase area decoration for many years before Martin became PM. One thing is for sure certain: The World Does Not Need More Bono.
