So you've got another dodgy election on your hands and you want to move to Toronto because you've heard it's like a Canadian New York.\nWe don't blame you, but we're really going to have to stop you right there. Toronto is not a Canadian New York, or a Canadian Chicago.\nToronto is Toronto and it's awesome, but it's also very different from what you're used to.\nSo before you hop a one-way flight to the 6ix, here a few things you should know.\nEditor's Choice: Here’s What Toronto Restaurants Are Doing To Keep Their Patios Open This Winter\nWe call it the 6ix\nView this post on Instagram Your family neighbourhood dentist ! Did you know we’ve been around for almost 20 years ! At Dentistry in the 6ix we value family. Spring is here let your smile shine ! 🌼🌸☀️ A post shared by Dr. N. Bitaraf (@dentistryinthe6ix) on Mar 26, 2019 at 7:24am PDT\nIt's pronounced "six" but, yeah, that's how it's spelled. It's kind of a numerical abbreviation for 416, the original Toronto area code. We used to call it YYZ, for our airport code, but then Drake happened and, well, now it's the 6ix. (The rest of Canada doesn't get it either.)\nIt's not as cold as you think it is\nWeather Network\nSure, we get winter and stuff freezes, but we're farther south than Seattle and Portland and most of New England. Buffalo gets way more snow than we do. Can you picture the border between Nebraska and South Dakota? You're American, of course you can. That's how far south we are.\nWe have a holiday called Family Day\nView this post on Instagram Nhân ngày Gia Đình năm nay, Toronto PHỞ xin kính chúc cả gia đình mình luôn hạnh phúc, mãi mãi bên nhau, tràn ngập tiếng cười và cùng nhau hưởng những giây phúc thật vui vẻ và đầm ấm. www.TorontoPHO.com #familyday #family #familytime #familylife #familyphoto #happy #happyfamily #Toronto #valentinesday #torontopho #tastetoronto #FamilydayToronto #TorontoFamily #Torontofamilytime #Torontofamilylife #FamilyphotoToronto #HappyfamilyToronto A post shared by Toronto Pho (@torontophorestaurant) on Feb 16, 2020 at 8:01am PST\nIt's a real holiday, not like Arbor Day or something. It's the stay-at-home-from-work-to-be-with-our-families kind. And it's around Valentine's Day. Because we're cute and cuddly that way.\nWe don't visit the CN Tower\nView this post on Instagram Hello city, your lights are fireflies in my heart❤️. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #torontostyle #cntower #cntowertoronto #cntowerview #photography #torontostyle #torontostyle #torontolife #torontophotographer #toronto_insta #instafollow #modelling #modelpose #modelsearch #mountainwarehouse #winterwear #winter #winteriscoming #blogger #bloggerstyle #bloggerlifestyle A post shared by Sanket (@sanketraval.18) on Nov 3, 2020 at 9:22am PST\nWe like to take our picture with it. We liked it when Drake put it on his cover, and it's how we tell where south is. Unless you live right next to it in what nobody-at-all calls SoCo, which was a thing some people tried to make happen, like SoHo, but for South Core. But because we're not New York (or London), it didn't. So if you want to take in the view, or eat at the actually really nice restaurant up there, do it before you move here.\nRestaurant bathrooms are in the basement\nA well worn Toronto basement bathroom staircase is a trope. pic.twitter.com/QIBauJbYnU— Three Geese Radius (@shawnmicallef) January 5, 2020\nIt makes no sense. People slip and fall. If you're disabled forget about it. But that's where they all are.\nAll the hospitals are in one place\nThat one doesn't make too much sense either, but it probably makes things easier for ambulance drivers. They're free though, as you may have heard, so there's that.\nWe don't really speak French that much\nTTC\nAnishinaabemowin, Kanyen’kéha, Italian, Cantonese, Punjabi, and Tagalog? Often. But though the majority of us are legally required to study French for at least four years, we can mostly just say "poutine."\nWe build houses for our trees\nTree Protection Services\nWe love our trees in Toronto, and whenever we think something might hurt one of them, like a big truck that has to come to help somebody build something, we build little houses to protect them until the danger has passed. We build them out of wood, which is a little like building dog houses out of dogs, but we don't think about that too much.\nWe love our raccoons\nView this post on Instagram I See You... ••• #iseeyou #caughtredhanded #raccoon #raccoontoronto #critter #wildlife #animal #urbannature #torontowildlife #creature #nocturnal #animal A post shared by A Great Capture (@agreatcapture) on Jul 30, 2017 at 2:39am PDT\nWe call them trash pandas, because look how cute! We also hate our raccoons. Their feelings about us also seem to be mixed. We're complicated.\nAlmost every tall building you see was built in the last 10 years\nLance McMillan\nSo don't expect us to know what it's called, what's in it, or even that it's there. It's news to us, too.\nWe have black squirrels\nView this post on Instagram It’s a nail-biter ~~ #blacksquirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #squirrels #animalphotography #animalsofinstagram #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers A post shared by Val (@musings.of.val) on Nov 3, 2020 at 4:25pm PST\nOur best squirrels are black. We had a white one once, though. You'd have thought it was the only squirrel in town. Everyone thought it was really special. We'd make pictures of it, put it on t-shirts, tell stories about it. How we loved and favoured our entitled white squirrel. Then it died. I wouldn't read too much into it.
