I like Toronto. It is less sexy than Montreal but it offers better public services, institutions and facilities, that's for sure.

Yes. That's why I sense some animosity between Ottawa and Montreal. The Senators have replaced the Nordiques in attracting French-Canadian hockey fans away from the Canadiens. The francophone press has adopted the Ottawa Senators as the second team to cover. Habs-Senators won't match the fun and animosity of Leafs-Senators but they are more fun to watch than Habs-Leafs.
