Happy 183rd Birthday, Toronto!


On March 6, 1834, the town of York incorporated as the City of Toronto. Back then, the city’s population topped out at 10,000 inhabitants split between 5 wards. (By contrast, the 2016 census puts Toronto’s current population at 2,731,571 in 44 wards.)

Happy birthday, Toronto! Let’s celebrate by eating some bread and drinking some coffee, shall we?
