Toronto in 1856, looking north up York St. to Osgoode Hall
Tomorrow is Toronto’s 175th anniversary and Spacing has two special announcements coming forth. We’re excited by both and think our readers will be too.
In the meantime, we want to kick off the celebrations with a call-to-arms to our readers: We want to break Spacing Toronto’s record of most comments on a single post (The current record is 140 comments on the recent post about the Downtown Relief Line).
We are challenging you, collectively, to give us 175 reasons (comments) to love Toronto. You can only give one reason per comment, though you can comment as many times as you wish. In return, we will randomly select a commenter and give them a full set of our subway buttons and a free 1-year subscription to the magazine.
So put your thinking caps on and tell us what Toronto does to make your heart flutter.
POST-SCRIPT 12:01am, March 6: Thank you for meeting our challenge. You’ve helped compile a great list that we’re happy to see grow well-beyond 175. — the editors
