  1. Wow, this is… ridiculous.  Having been to Toronto suburbs and downtown, the Toronto downtown has way more variety and non-chain stores than the suburbs.  Ottawa is also clearly less big-boxy downtown.

    I really don’t understand why he would possibly think it is otherwise.

    Anecdotes are not data.  One strip mall shows nothing.
