Attended a service at the Cathedral celebrating the 175 years of the Archdiocese of Toronto. The Cathedral looks impressive with its newly restored stained glass images. The basement is nicely done with the cript of the first archbishop of Toronto Micheal Power.

A great deal of restoration has been underway for many months and will continue for awhile yet. But kudos that one of Torontos oldest buildings is being restored.

I was unable to enter as the Cathedral was closed for almost completed renovations but the external structure is magnificent. A fitting structure to honour Jesus Christ, with the cost of the renovation being small compared to the money expended annually by the Catholic Church...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
