A Better Toronto Slogan: The Ones That Almost Made It

When we asked Toronto to come up with a better slogan for itself, Toronto responded.
Now, after almost one-thousand submissions—one fifth of which, incidentally, had the word “world” in them—we’re finally almost ready to reveal the ten finalists, as chosen by our esteemed panel of judges. Those ten finalists, to refresh your memory, have each been turned into mock tourism posters by Torontoist’s Marc Lostracco and our photographers. We’ll be publishing them, one at a time, every weekday for the next two weeks, starting this week. When we’re done that, it’ll be your turn to pick our winner.
But first: the slogans that made it near the top ten, but didn’t quite crack the ceiling.
