I WANT TO LIVE IN MONTREAL
Because of the romance. Because of the language and history. Because you hear, stuck on the streetcar, that things there just work. Because it’s not Toronto.
I WANT TO LIVE ON THE EAST COAST
Because of the Atlantic, the wild, rocky shores. Because of the trees and the green. Because of the accents and openness. Because it’s not Toronto.
I WANT TO LIVE IN THE NORTH
Because it’s remote. Because you’re curled up and reminded EVERY DAY where you live, an unbroken expanse of untamed– you look around and are dwarfed by what you see. Made little by the scale. Ego tamed and worrying about real– when the weather is bad, you worry, when you’re caught out and alone at night you worry too. Because it’s not Toronto.
