Toronto - Canada

I only had 3 canadian cards to show and all of them were from Ontario. This one, sent by Marie, is from the province's capital, Toronto, with a view of the city's downtown featuring the Roger's Center, CN Tower and the Financial District.

Toronto is the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario.
The city has 2.6 million residents, according to the 2011 Census. Based on these official census figures, it is currently the fifth most populous city in North America.
Toronto is at the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, and of the densely populated region in Southern Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe. Its cosmopolitan and international population reflects its role as an important destination for immigrants to Canada. Toronto is one of the world's most diverse cities by percentage of non-native-born residents, with about 49% of the population born outside Canada. - in: wikipedia
