“What is a Canadian?”

“A Canadian is a fellow wearing English tweeds, a Hong Kong shirt and Spanish shoes, who sips Brazilian coffee sweetened with Philippine sugar from a Bavarian cup while nibbling Swiss cheese, sitting at a Danish desk over a Persian rug, after coming home in a German car from an Italian movie… and then writes his Member of Parliament with a Japanese ballpoint pen on French paper, demanding that he do something about foreigners taking away our Canadian jobs.”

If our friends up north can rightly claim Montreal as one of the most charming cities in the world, they can also brag about the dynamic vibe of Toronto, a thriving and diverse ball of energy that is also characterized by the typical Canadian politeness.  Traveling to the city from North America, particularly the East coast, is a breeze and Air Canada‘s web site regularly features specials and last-minute discounts, perfect for spur-of-the-moment weekend jaunts.  You may even want to take advantage of the airline’s Stopover Program, allowing you to travel to cities in Asia and Europe via layovers in Toronto for up to 7 days at no additional cost.  Arriving at the city’s Pearson-International Airport is a welcomed relief as it is, much like Montreal’s Trudeau, one of the better international airports in the world.  What will strike you is the stunning skyline Toronto has adopted and the magnificent view as you land (ensure you’re on the left side of the plane.)
