Things Montrealers told us about Toronto this weekend:

Everyone’s getting shot here.
Rent is too expensive.
It’s the source of white collar crime.
People dress and walk funny here.

Things Torontonians told us about Montreal this weekend:

There’s nothing to do.
It’s a dead city that’s crumbling in on itself.
Everyone interesting moved away a long time ago.
It looks nice, but who cares?

Things Montrealers told us about Montreal this weekend:

Housing is way too expensive.

Things Torontonians told us about Toronto this weekend:

There’s nothing to do.

What Torontoist takes away from all of this:
We are idiots, all of us. We don’t realize what an amazing thing it is to live within 500 km of another amazing city with a completely different set of pleasures and opportunities to offer.
We’re awfully defensive for urbanites who have it so accordingly good.
We’ve got serious PR problems on all sides.
If we’re not going to say anything nice, we should just shut up now.
For better or for worse, everyone finally seems to agree that both cities have excellent food, so that’s a step in the right direction. Go Canada!
