    A couple things,
    CN tower(tallest structure in N.America)

    Young steet.-just walk down it.Lots of shopping and wierd people.

    Hockey Hall of Fame-Meca to most Canadians/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Maybe take in a Blue-Jays baseball game at the Sky-Dome.It's right beside the CN Tower.Tickets are EASY to get!

    Toronto museum of Art.I think that's across the street from the CN Tower as well.

    Take in just about any of the multitude of restarants in town.All have thier own unique atmosphere.

    Tell them not to worry either.For it's size it's a very safe a clean city.

    Better than KK? "Better" is an understatement, man.

    Tim's is one of the main reasons that I may be selling the K5 within a year, and moving up to The Great White North.

    CRAP...how could I forget that!

    Ya tell them to go to Tim Hortons(it's like Dunkin Donuts in the "States") and get a "medium double double".
    That means a medium coffee with 2 surgers and 2 cream.
    Maple walnut or Boston cream donuts are excellant too!

    Then go to Burger King and try some "Poutin".
    It's french fries covered in brown gravy and cheese curds.
    It's good...and good for you!/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Not to hijack, but now that I know that there is a Toronto area population on the board, I need to know what emissions testing is like around there. I really don't want to sell the truck, but I may end up there in a year or so... Feel free to PM me, to keep this thread from going too far off topic.

    Anyways..
    I now return you to your regularly scheduled conversation.

    Northern Ont. there is no requiered testing yet.
    Southern Ont.(mainly the populated area's) requier's an emissions test every 2 years if your vehicle is 3 years or older.
    Of course your exempt is the vehicle is 30 years old or more.

    Well, I'll be visiting the Toronto area a lot in the next year. My girlfriend is attending Waterloo University, starting this fall. If all goes right, I could be living there, depending on the job market, by next spring.

    I'm a comptuer geek/network administrator, by trade. I'm currently in the banking industry, doing computer networks/mainframe stuff/management. I haven't looked too much in that area, yet, as I am not quite ready to move there.
