Toronto’s perennial appearance on the world’s most livable cities lists may not be the stuff of racy headlines, but it does help explain what makes the city great. Because given what’s going on here, livability shouldn’t be so easy. In 2012, the population surpassed that of Chicago. About half of those 2.8 million people were born in another country, making the culture not fractious but enriching. Meanwhile, with its film festival, the city serves as the country’s artistic center. It’s an economic engine, too, which means old neighborhoods are being revived and the dining scene is picking up. And in 2014, the city can even vote in a new mayor. Toronto gets better all the time.
