Torontonians are not known for giving themselves a pat on the back. We have a reputation for being highly critical of ourselves and quick to find fault with our city. We can hardly believe it when we do something well. Therefore, it was somewhat of a shock to us that the 2015 Toronto Pan American Games turned out to be such a success. We were fine hosts, if I do say so myself.
Last Sunday afternoon, on the last day of the games, I strolled around City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square, enjoying the beautiful summer weather and all that sunshine. I saw the "TORONTO" sign and listened to some steel band music (By the way, I think the "TORONTO" sign should remain. It is lively and colourful. It has the potential be a great landmark for the city). Oh yes, and just so you won't think I'm only focused on Toronto, I must say that Hamilton and other locations in Ontario's Golden Horseshoe deserve congratulations for their efforts.
Here are some photos from Sunday afternoon. I hope you enjoy them.
