Earlier tonight, I went for a walk with a classmate. She brought up an interesting point about Toronto. What is the reason to live in Toronto? If you want to go biking, hiking, ski-dooing, etc, then you have to leave the city for the countryside to do these things. And, she said that she found the point of living in this city was to shop, to eat, and to suck in bad polluted air.
So, this slightly biased conversation got me thinking: why do people choose to live in metropolitan cities, like Toronto?
My reason for living in Toronto is attending a university in Toronto that offers the only program on this subject in Ontario.
What are your reasons for living in the large metropolitan cities that you had lived in or are now living in?
