Toronto is the biggest city in Canada, and is often mistaken for being the capitol of Canada, even though it is Ottawa. This is most likely due to Toronto’s population and popularity.

In 2002 a newspaper called “The Economist” listed Toronto the number fourth best city to live in, due to their low crime rate, good environment and a high standard of living.
