The name of this incredible megacity means "the meeting place" in Huron. FYI, the exact centre of the universe is at Yonge & Dundas, acording to several large subway ads put up by Eatons.

I often find it fascinating that in a world dominated by Americans, Toronto has managed to stake a largely unchallenged claim to this title; a title that one would think any self-respecting city would lust after out of sheer tenacious pride.

OTOH, TO does have one feature that no other city on the planet can touch: it has no majority ethnic group. Yep, you heard that right! As a consequence of being the target for the overwhelming majority of Canada's burgeoning immigrant influx, Toronto has morphed into the 1st ever truly international city. As such, I can think of no better place to be considered at least the centre of the planet, if not the entire universe.
