  • Garbage. Headquarters of propaganda. Music is AWFUL Tv shows are over funded and over advertised trash I would be ashamed to be Canadian if I considered CBC Canadian They ram multiculturalism down your throat and tell you that you love it.... everyone with an IQ of 120 and below chews it up. Same old stories since Noah's ark Rogers and CBC shake each other's hands inside the devils anus.... If you have s brain, try to figure out that this kind of poison is not beneficial to your life. Too bad. Sad.
  • Go yearly for kids CBC days. They love it, I don't. Can get very busy, but it's very well organized. It's well thought out with various stations and activities both inside and out. Kids always come home with little hand-made gifts and free books!
  • Cool place to go to. Security is strange and uptight, but generally open to public. Check out some tapings for shows!
  • Love this place. Right now you can find this Lego model of the CBC on displace. Very cool!
  • Iconic instutution. Public-accessible foyer where you can sit and watch a humongous TV array. Connected to the PATH and immediately adjacent underground food court.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
