It looks like everyone's favourite selfie backdrop in Toronto has received an incredible makeover.

The iconic Toronto sign at Nathan Phillips Square has undergone a bit of a transformation and is now covered with 150 six-word stories from Toronto residents

The new appearance, titled "My City, My Six," is part of the "TO Canada with Love" campaign, which is geared towards helping all Torontonians see the city in different ways

"What better place to display short, six-word stories about our city than right on the Toronto Sign," said Mayor John Tory.

"The My City My Six project helps us all see our city in different ways and better appreciate the experiences of our fellow residents."

When it came to choosing the perfect stories, My City My Six received more than 4,200 submissions from which only a 150 were chosen to honour Canada 150.

The stories can also be found scattered throughout the city on billboards, TTC displays and at city-wide exhibitions.

Some of the winning stories include: "Toronto woke me from my sleep," "West of Spadina I'm a tourist," "Riding the bus to nowhere tonight," and “Toronto raccoons are smarter than you.”
