So I just spent the last week in Toronto.

The harbor front is nice with a lot of things to do.

The Blue Jays were playing last night in their nice stadium. It is too bad Toronto island is flooded. I would have liked to go there.

Plenty on 20 and 30 somethings living in high rise apartment buildings. The buildings are everywhere in the down town area.

They ride the train to work. They bicycle everywhere and jog along the lake front.

The mass transit is plentiful and efficient.

Their diversity is very visible with people from many countries living peacefully together and speaking their native languages.

The young folks are struggling with paying for rent and food and their student loans.

Nobody there seams to be worried about Trump. I think they are adjusting to the new world order taking place.

I think we will be looking to Canada as a leader to emulate instead of the other way around.

You just described Chicago pretty well.

2. Toronto doesn't have the pockets of extreme poverty and violence.

Canada has a good safety net, universal healthcare and a good education system.
