Snow in Toronto

I know its mean to make fun of people (or in this case, cities) but being an Ontarian (or a Canadian for that matter) that doesn't live in Toronto means that I, like the rest of the country, have a civil obligation to make fun of Toronto.  Okay, I may be exaggerating a smidgeon, and if there are any Torontonians out there, I mean no personal offense.  However, ever since 2000 when the mayor of Toronto (Mel Lastman) called in 400 troops (with 800 more on standby) to deal with 8cm of snow, which equals just over three inches, Toronto's credibility as a legitimate member of this great nation has been... well, somewhat decimated.  I mean, its not totally Toronto's fault.  Geographically speaking, they just don't get much snow.  But leaving out those details makes it a much better story, eh?
