Toronto has always been a city to embrace trends and fads. One of the most notable transformations over the past decade has involved the city moving from a quiet business centre to one of the undisputed hipster metropolises of North America, a process which has gone hand-in-hand with the breakneck pace of gentrification. One of the most visible signs of Toronto’s “hipsterfication” is the proliferation of so-called “video game bars” in every corner of the city. These days, one of…

Toronto is one of the greatest cities in Canada – if not the entirety of North America – but it can also be expensive. Tourism to Canada in 2018 so far is largely surpassing the levels that 2017 achieved, and once the stereotype of the cold Great White North has been abolished, people are getting on board with how great the city really is.
