Haha yep - jerks think they're better than everyone else! That doesn't fly in Canada.

Well, while I can't speak for everyone in the Toronto area, I certainly hope this group doesn't think they're better. It is an interesting city, but many other places in Canada are more so. For my own interests, it's hard to do better than Canmore or Whistler.

Even in the US, I still appreciate fans of teams who have far fewer superbowls than mine.

This seems pertinent to the Maple Leaves or whatever.

Leafs, I'm pretty sure, though inexplicably.

I cannot endorse this grammatical error, just as the Boston Celtics should be pronounced with a starting hard "C."

But it's terribly useful...soft C and the person is referring to the team, hard C and they're referring to various people or languages of the British isles, or more likely to some dancers at a folk festival.

I'm pretty sure that Maple Leaf is a proper noun in this case (team named after an army regiment) so the plural is Leafs. Old name was Toronto St. Patricks

Which arguably should have been the Saints Patrick.

Latest issue of Toronto Life has an article about Toronto's new 'hot spot' - Hamilton.

4 neighbours within 50 metres of our house moved to Hamilton or Dundas over the last 4 years...(including the people we bought our house from...)

I'd move there in a heartbeat, but the bakery is 6 km away, my wife has a 10-15 subway commute to work, and our families are close by.

(...although work takes me to Burlington/Hamilton, and the green space/O-scene are a huge draw.)
