Toronto in the cold…but the locals say it’s warm!

A pure travelblog…of Toronto at the cold end of winter

But first my Michael Portillo bit (with apologies to non-UK readers)…

The grandeur that is Union Station Toronto symbolically dominating the city centre. Built in Art Deco style of 1920s glory, partnered perfectly with the dominion building next door and the dripping opulence and sheer dominance of Fairmont Royal York hotels…fit for the rich and famous royalty and Michael Portillo and his TV crew. Had to pop in to try and raise the tone!

Air Canada Centre next caught my eye/lens

Harbour front deserted in the cold of winter, but interestingly the ice rink is a boating lake in the summer, and needs no artificial help to keep it frozen!

Unusual shot of the CN Tower

You can learn to skate in the fountains outside City Hall and irrespective of your age you can have a Zimmer frame to help you!

And finally…in Canadian red coat and trainers…perhaps I need to see Mr Portillo’s tailor! And yes it was snowing, windy and cold but no need to worry, the buses, subway and traffic all coped!
