Although Torontonians have the stereotype of being a wholly French/British influenced lot, you'll actually find that the city of Toronto features quite a diverse mix of cultures spanning the world over. With more than 200 distinct ethnic origins (as of the 2006 census), Toronto has even been recognized as one of the most multicultural cities in the world, second only to Miami, Florida, according to a 2004 study by the United Nations Development Program. It's no wonder Toronto has a developed a unique local language - Toronto slang - that's as multifaceted as its inhabitants.
