While I am pretty familiar with Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa, and other Eastern cities, I’m not all that familiar with Toronto. Even though I have a substantial number of followers who read my Twitter and blog and are from Toronto, I’m not really knowledgeable about this city. So my question to you, dear readers – what are your top 5 things to-do things in Toronto?

Remember, I am going there for research (I’m attending meetings on the water policy sector), and I will also be busy doing some academic speaking (most likely, yet unconfirmed, at Ryerson, University of Toronto and possibly University of Waterloo). So, I’m not looking to do a lot of tourist stuff, but I want to hit those spots that, should people come to my blog looking for Toronto things to do, they can read up.

Thoughts? Have at it on the comments section. Please forward this blog post to friends/colleagues in the TO area so I can get as many suggestions as possible.
