My girlfriend moved to Toronto. And than we broke up

Toronto - what does it mean?
One of the best cities in the world, recently tied for 5th place in the Economist Intelligence Unit's "Top Places to Live" study. Best city in Canada by far. Has low crime (check the stats, dipshits!) and nice people.
"I wish I could live in Toronto."
Toronto - meaning
I went from Toronto to Owen Sound and all I saw were strippers and welfare bums.
Toronto - definition
A great city to live in. Some people are full of themselves and like to think the sun shines for them and only for them, but the majority of people in Toronto are truly good people. Many interesting and beautiful neighbourhoods to explore, and great restaurants/ bars/ cafes etc. One negative thing is that the city continually tears down historic buildings, and build ugly "modern" looking ones. like the Royal Ontario Museum's crystal extension. We also tend to ignore the impoverished people in our city, such as the community of Regent Park, Jane and Finch, or parts of Scarborough. Crime is a problem in Toronto, but so is it in any other city of it's size. Actually, for it's size, Toronto has a very low crime rate. Public transit is okay, could be better. But I've deffinately seen worse. All in all, Toronto is a great city to live in. My favourite neighbourhoods include: The Annex, Queen Street West, and the Harbourfront.
Toronto - slang
Archaeologist #1: "We opened up that city-sized time capsule that we found on the shore earlier this week."
Toronto is the most cosmopolitan, ethnically-diverse city in Canada and, last time I checked, North America. Many Vancouverites and Montrealers can't accept this and say that Toronto is violence-ridden and that we have a drug problem, overlooking the fact that Vancouver's drug problem is so bad that they actually have detox centers run by the city where heroin addicts can get a safe hit. I won't even talk about Montreal, other than to say that they're whining bitches that can't deal with the fact that they're not Canada's biggest and best city in Canada and haven't been since the 70's.
Toronto kicks massive ass.
The only Canadian city that still has MLB and the NBA and may get an NFL team. A city with the most underrated architecture and diverse neighbourhoods. Perhaps that's why Jane Jacobs lived there. Interesting streetscapes, a public transit system that at worst could be described as "adequate", a lively arts scene, employment, and civic pride. A bit of a late bloomer in the international scene, Toronto is ambitious, look at the film festival for instance. The term world class has lost meaning, call it what you want, it's a great city. To believe that a majority of people in Toronto are ugly or self-centered or is akin to racism. People aren't afraid to live, and we all have moments of pleasure, impatience, insecurity, pride, ecstasy, joy. If you can see that collage in Toronto, the dualities and diversity in experience you can appreciate it for what it is. A large group of people, buildings and experiences that interplay and create something new everyday.
A sampling of architecture- Van der Rhoe's modernism, 1 King West, the City Halls, the Canada Malting Plant, Liberty Village, the Distillery District, Hart House (the the University of Toronto in general), the OCAD building, the new AGO and ROM crystals, countless Victorians, the CN Tower, St. Lawrence Hall, the Allen Lambert Galleria at BCE Place, the art deco of Tip Top Tailors, the CHUM city building, the Flat Iron Building
