From Chelsea Rooney:

July 29, 2015

“… The surrounding buildings popped up red brick, blue glass and multi-coloured spandrel panels. Unfamiliar languages and skin tones; mellifluous patois and deep blacks. I inhaled the smell of old garbage, nothing that all the bins were overflowing with waste. Thank God, I thought. A city. … Less than three minutes off the bus and I could already sense that Toronto was tougher, older, more confident than Vancouver. Neighbourhoods etched like tattoos. A resilience that comes with age.”
