London and New York, I'd imagine. Maybe Paris, too.

Default Toronto is the most diverse city in the world

the United nations has labelled Toronto the most ethinically diverse city in the world for the last 5 years. more than half he population are visible minorites and there are no urban ghettos.

Americans really should learn more about their neighbor next door.

Why? Why do you think that the more visible minorites the better than less?

That is racism, although not a form of it you find wrong. The diversity of an area in no way makes it better. I'll bet you would call someone praising a city for being 90% white racist so doesn't it stand to reason that wanting few whites in a city is also racist?

You don't really have me convinced that America should learn about diversity from Canada. Oh, and Toronto does have some bad neighborhoods.

I think what ivyleaguer meant, which you may or may not have misinterpreted, is that considering the diversity socially/ racially/ ethnically/ economically and sheer size of Toronto, it is far more harmonious & integrated than most any other US city. And in that sense I agree with ivyleaguer in that many US cities can learn various aspects from the Toronto model. However, obviously US cities have different histories, more hostile racial relations, etc, however, Toronto is quite impressive in a certain regard- I was just there & taken aback by how civil & integrated people were, that was my perspective having lived in various big US cities.

The white man is the minority in lots of places. Trust me.

I think the places with the most diversity are Los Angeles, The San Francisco Bay Area, New York, London, Toronto and Amsterdam.

It seems to be that what separates Toronto from the other diverse cities is the degree of social interaction between the different groups. I know here in NYC you there are many many different types that live here but socially it's still pretty darn segrated. We may work and commute together but it's still uncommon that we live and "hang out" together.
