Located on the northwest shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is the largest city in Canada; the fifth most populous city in North America. The city celebrated its 175th anniversary on March 6, 2009.

The ciy was first purchased from the Mississaugas, established as the town of York, and in 1834 was named Toronto.

Throughout the late 20th Century, Toronto began to surge above Montreal as Canada’s most populous city. As the Quebec Sovereignty Movement came about, maybe companies relocated from Montreal to Toronto.

Movie Night

leave a comment »

DavidsTea is a Canadian tea company that specializes in loose leaf teas. With locations across Canada and in the Northeast, a franchise recently popped up in New York City’s Greenwich Village, on Bleecker (275 Bleecker St, between 6th and 7th).

One of the more interesting selections is the “Movie Night” tea that features popcorn!

The company describes it best: “This popcorn tea is better than the real thing. First of all, it has no calories. Second of all, it’s sweetened with maple and apple. Third of all, it has green tea, which studies (well, ok, experience) say is the ideal brew for keeping you quietly alert throughout a late-night flick. Great for thrillers, dramas, westerns or comedies. Drink it at home or smuggle it into the theatre.”
