Exaggerate? Dude do you you live in Toronto? Walk around Toronto and compare to other world cities and come back to me. The same Toronto where they have had ugly concrete barriers in front of Union Station which could be there for the next 10 years without anyone batting an eyeExaggerate much? If EVERYTHING about living here is so unpleasant, there is always the option of moving.
As for moving out, how are people who have been living here all our lives with work, family, and connections to this city supposed to just uproot and leave? It doesn't mean we should bury our heads in the sand and pretend everything is marvellous here.
