Toronto isn't going to be a stand in city anymore. Two big motion picture movies are going to be filmed here and there's also those primetime shows. The T-dot is going to be recognized globally soon.

Toronto already is recognized globally - except it seems among Americans, who strangely enough barely seem to know it exists. You're right though, now that major Hollywood movies and primetime television series are being not only filmed (as has been the case for decades) but set in Toronto, I have a feeling a whole lot of Americans will suddenly realize that there is this great big city up here across the border that they hardly know anything about.

This reminds me of a guy in these very forums (from Texas I believe) who said he wouldn't go anywhere named after an Indian in the Lone Ranger.

Hey Atticman, how many years did you spend living in the states? I am just assuming you have, because with a statement like that you must have spent quite a bit of time around the Yanks.

Matt - Be nice or we won't let you post in the Canada section anymore!

I do think Toronto is rather slept on in the states however. But to say they don't know it exists is exaggerating a bit Atticman!

Come on man, you knew I couldn't resist

I admit it is slept on to an extent in certain pockets of the States (The same pockets that sleep on major American cities as well) but in the more cultured parts of the country they know TO VERY well, trust me.

I will be surprised if many Americans know what are the capital cities of Canada, or Australia.
