SOme fun fact you could learn from our waterfront west tour

Did you know

In the Summer of 1847 Toronto’s population nearly tripled from 20,000 to 58,000 people? This was because the city accepted 38,000 refugees from Ireland fleeing the Irish Potato Famine.

Did you know

The 1st railway in Toronto went north-south, not east-west? The present Union Station is the 4th version that was built.
