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.
