I just wish Toronto/Canada could get its acts together and revamp VIA Rail into something that actually resembles a 21st century rail service.


The high speed train you are referring to is highly controversial with the Majority of Californians opposed to it. There are 6 airports in Southern California with frequent non-stop air service to San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland.


It is not considered proper etiquette to refer to California as "Cali". That is as bad as referring to San Francisco as "Frisco" which is a city in Texas. Cali is a city in Colombia SA.

There is a big difference. There is an international border between Toronto and the vast majority of the people you list for Toronto.

San Francisco is a very compact city of 852,000 people all in an area of only 47 sq. mi. There is no room to expand.

considering Paris has 2.3 million and Barcelona has 1.7 million on land of exactly the same size I hardly call SF very compact or no room to expand.

SF has about the same density as the old city of Toronto before 1998. Neither is exceptionally compact.

Toronto-2.7 million and SF-830,000 No comparison! Toronto is way, way more citylike and dense than SF. High rises all over the place in downtown, near downtown, waterfront and corridors.

The population doesn't make it any better. The fact is that San Francisco is very unique in a beautiful setting. Toronto is just a big city with nothing very attractive about it. If I want a big city, I will go to New York city which is a great place to visit. We visit Manhattan every summer.

I have spent a lot of time in both cities.

Doesn't the saying go something like this:

New York - great place to visit, wouldn't want to live there. Toronto - great place to live, wouldn't want to visit.
