In my opinion, it's a temporary thing. Globalism sounds good on paper. But sometimes a country has to look inward a bit to address its problems and get its own house back in order.

In time, it will all come to pass and everything will be back to normal.

Major Nightclubs?; Heavily pedestrian areas?; famous plazas?; Great food? Major infrastructure projects?


Being as all the answers to these are no a suggest Toronto expands outside of the industry transgender propaganda
Lets break it down for you Toronto style:


1. Disneyland:
- That is not actually a criteria for anything as most cities in the world do not have a "DisneyLand" and why should they. Toronto has Centreville and just 10 minutes outside to Toronto if Canada's Wonderland. We don't really need a formal playground when we have streets and buildings overflowing with different things to do.

2. Regarding major banks we have Toronto-Dominion Bank/ TD bank and Toronto-Dominion Bank and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce CIBC. With locations growing outside of Canada. Thanks for asking.

3. There is only one UN headquarter, The IMF and World Bank headquater? Right now we don't already have them, but we 100% should in my opinion. This is a multilingual multicultural city where anyone from anywhere can find a bit of their own culture and global traditions.

4. Wet have a Wet and Wild Water Park located in the North West Partk of the city, plus operational beaches across the Lake Ontarion Shore line. We also have a water park inside of Canada's Wonderland Located 10 minutes north of Toronto.

5. We do a modern metro system and we are well linked to the rest of the province of Ontarion. The metro system is clean and continues to explain day by day.

6. We have fast internet comparable to any other major city in the world.

7. We do have major tech companies operating in Toront and we are the nearest major city in Canda to our thecinal valley equivalent.

8. In the City of Toronto resorts are not needed. The city is the stomping grounds to fine dining, world class entertainment, galleries, festivals and events. Out city is considered one of the safest in the world and tourist do not need to be restricted to zoned guarded areas for safty,

9. Toronto is situated on Ontario Ontario and has many beaches.

10. Toronto has many historical buildings.

11. Toronto has most if not all major religious group representation present. You name it. They are here and have a religious structure or organization in this city.

12. Toronto has it's fingers in very other country in the world because we are a multicultural city and a living example of how multicultural cities and work in a peaceful and progressive way. The face of Toronto is global.

13. As mentioned we are one of the safest major cities in the world. Our streets are safe so we must already be doing somethign right.

14. Toronto has sports teams of hockey, baseball, football, soccer and basketfall. There are likely others that I can't think of off hand. We recently hosted the Pan Am Games and it went off exceptionally well. All the world class facilities for winter and summer sports are here.

15. Techology is everywhere. There is not shortage. Grow in made in this area daily.

16. Toronto has many media outlets. In addition to this many international movies and tv shows are filmed in our city.

17. We have an amazing Riplies Believe it or Not Aquarium and it is located in the heart of the city right beside the CN Tower.

18. Actully Toronto have sevearl world classes colleges and hospitals.

19. Toront has a Rotating Restuarant at the Top of the CN Tower which is one of the tallest free standing struction in the world. You can dining there and then to a climb around it edges if you have the stomach for that.

20. Toronto has sevarel casions and many night clubs.

21. Toronto is full of pedestrian areas. No shortage of that in this city,

22. Famous plazas meaning malls? Lots of those. Famous plazas meaning squres, yes we have numberous.

23. Great food out all different sorts all other this city. Due to our diversity there is not shortage of any type of food in this city.

24. The entire city is being reconstructed on a regular basis. Construction in Toronto is booming. Lots of major projections going on.

If you have never been to Toronto come check us out !

P.S. If you had to ask all these questions you clearly don't know anything about Toronto and don't know what you are missing

No 'world' sports that's for sure! All in all there are many reasons why Bradford is easily the no. 1 pick for 'world capital' I have only mentioned a few.

I'd say either New York City or Los Angeles.

As much as I love Asian cities, they aren't anywhere near as global.

London and Paris is probably as close as it gets to NYC & LA, and one could argue that they are above it. Paris is a bit too French-centric, i.e. most global by far, for the French speaking world...i.e. Islam, Africa, French colonial influences coming to its capital city en masse.

I think NYC and LA, particularly because of the predominance of American culture worldwide, kind of makes it so that you can't deny their worldwide influence.

I don't think any other city quite gets near those 4 cities though.

Sense of humour!? I thought I made some pretty reasonable reasons why Bradford should be world capital.
