You know that it's a slow news day when people are trumping up stories about "east Toronto" vs. "west Toronto."
I grew up in The Beaches and now live in the west end, so I lay claim to both
sides of the city.
Whatever the root of this east-vs-west "battle," it made for some
funny lines in a Toronto Star article defending "west as best."
And I quote:
"Now, you may quip we’re
shallow in the west and worry about things like whether it’s “too” ironic to
wear a vest and sport a hipster beard at the same time. Maybe we’ll grow out of
that, and when we do, it’s good to know there’s a sedate community just an
eastbound streetcar ride away, undisturbed by such urban notions as vibrancy
and staying out past 10."
