Imagine a city where every culture of the world can come and feel comfortable. Imagine a city where your gender, race, age, and sexual preference do not limit your opportunities. Imagine a city where dreams come true for the poor as well as the rich. Toronto is so close to being that city, and with a little help from everyone it can be. Events like the CN Tower Climb bring together the community to support the United Way. This makes Toronto one step closer to becoming the most unique and diverse city in the world. Where people from every corner of the planet come together to improve their lives and pave a better future for their children. Imagine a city where difference is what we all have in common. Imagine Toronto.
