The City Of Toronto

This is a quiz to see how well you know the City of Toronto in Ontario. If you don't know an answer, you will soon learn it. This quiz deals with the basic geography of Toronto, places in Toronto, government, and other facts as well. This quiz shouldn't be too difficult if you know Toronto fairly well. PS. If a fill-in-the-blanks question comes up, for example, and in that question there are 5 answers, and it says 7 words are in the answer, that means one answer might have two or more words, so be careful of that, and do not use commas - just spaces to seperate each answer from another when you type the answer in. Enjoy Torontonians!
