Queen and Spadina Toronto
Toronto

Welcome to the corner of Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue in Toronto.

A very famous spot in the city both day and night.

Here we are at the tail end of rush hour as streetcar after streetcar loads passengers.

Many a squeegie kid have been banned and arrested at this intersection.   Many a late night throw-up sessions have occurred in the McDonalds across the street.

Head south down Spadina to the Gardiner Expressway an to Rogers Centre (Skydome)... head north up Spadina and you are right in Chinatown.

Head east right here on Queen to some of the trendiest shopping stores in Toronto including Steve's Music Store and Silver Snail Comics, amongst all the other clothing and cosmetic stores.

Just beside McDonalds there used to be a Blockbuster Video store for years and years.  It was the only one in the 1990's that carried old-school LaserDiscs for rental.

Circa 1999 I would make a long trip downtown to rent new releases here but not before having a hot dog from the vendor at this corner.

But this is not the same vendor.  And the hotdogs are no longer $2.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
