Although Toronto is Canada’s most populous city, it is also a place with the lowest crime rate in the whole Northern American hemisphere. The long history of the city began when the British Crown bought a parcel of land at the end of the 18th century. Over time, it went on to become a melting pot of various cultures and it is only fitting that this capital city of Ontario boasts the motto “Diversity Our Strength” in its coat of arms. Proving that the diversity of the city is not merely a slogan, recently the city hosted the inauguration of the Aga Khan Museum, a rectangular structure that houses a complete history and civilization of Islam, a faith that houses a comprehensive history of Islamic civilizations.
