Can you sum up Southern Ontario? Southern Ontario is a beautiful place, but it is subtly so. The entire geography lacks grandeur, and yet there is still a very sublime feeling in the landscape.  You can travel any distance away from here, and very slowly you start to see changes in the hills, the trees, and the water, until you come across the most serene nook of a place.  And yet, we have four very distinct seasons that change almost too fast.  You’re not quite humbled by the landscape, so this place is very naturally and easily home.

If someone was visiting, what must they do? Drive across Ontario

A perfect meal in Toronto? There are too many good restaurants here, so anything fresh from the garden and cooked for as many people as you can.

What is the best thing about your spot? It’s home

What is the worst? Snow turned to slush on the city streets
