The Cultural Queen of Canada by Suanne Kelman - The Literary Review of Canada

The Cultural Queen of Canada by Suanne Kelman - The Literary Review of Canada | My Toronto | Scoop.it
Juan Gavasa's insight:

Should Egan’s dystopian vision prove accurate, the word “celebrity” will surely join the other word casings. Lorraine York, the Senator William McMaster Chair in Canadian Literature and Culture at McMaster University, repeatedly acknowledges the word’s protean meanings in Margaret Atwood and the Labour of Literary Celebrity. Indeed, it is the crux of the book, which was born out of a dismissive remark by Toronto councillor Doug Ford. When Atwood raced to the defence of the city’s libraries, he told the press: “I don’t even know her. If she walked by me, I wouldn’t have a clue who she is.” The CanLit über-star is the politician’s nobody.

Inundación repentina en Toronto sumerge autos y a un tren en hora pico | lagranepoca.com | My Toronto | Scoop.it
En pocas horas cayeron más de 100 mm de lluvia superando el promedio mensual de julio de 74,4 mm
Juan Gavasa's insight:

De las cerca de 300.000 personas que el lunes se quedaron sin energía eléctrica en Toronto, Canadá, para la mayoría fue restablecida el martes por la mañana, pero 35.000 personas siguen a oscuras. La ciudad se recupera de las inundaciones repentinas que sumergieron coches durante la hora pico de tráfico en la noche del lunes, y dejó cerca de mil personas apretujadas en un tren hasta la 01:00 a.m.

Toronto, una ciudad en la que los extranjeros son bienvenidos

Toronto, una ciudad en la que los extranjeros son bienvenidos | My Toronto | Scoop.it
Es el centro financiero y crecen las start-ups de tecnologías de información.
Juan Gavasa's insight:

Toronto es una de las ciudades más dinámicas de Canadá. Su principal atractivo es que más del 50% de la población no ha nacido en el país. Por consiguiente, es una de las pocas ciudades en el mundo de más de tres millones de habitantes "donde toda la gente que hemos llegado somos ciudadanos de primera", asegura Jordi Vilanova, vicepresidente y socio de Mercan Capital y presidente del Chapter Canadá de Esade Alumni, quien precisamente se dedica a captar inversores de distintas partes del mundo que desean establecerse en Canadá. De hecho, según la consultora Deirdre Barry, "el 70% de su población está formada por la primera generación de inmigrantes, procedentes de todo el mundo. La gente aquí es muy amable y abierta a los inmigrantes, lo que la convierte en una ciudad donde integrarse es fácil".
