Since I am a geography geek, last Thursday I posed the question, "what is the size of your city?"
By this I was not referring to the Area, but the population.
Well, the results are in, and here they are:

7. Rose White - Ada, Michigan 9,882
6. Cameron Fraser - Milton, Ontario 47, 500
5. Benjamin James - Methyr Tydfil, Wales 60,000
4. Cameron Fraser - Peterborough, Ontario 74, 600
3. Rose White - Grand Rapids, Michigan 189,126
2. Cam Fraser & Ben James - Cardiff, Wales 305,340
1. Joshua & April Best - Toronto, Ontario 2,481,494

Well, the facts don't lie, my friends. It seems that we CAN call Toronto a big least in our circles.
However, I must admit: Canada is not really big as a whole. To display this to all of you, especially my international friends, I have created and posted a simple image.

Remember kids,
we are ALL precious in his sight.
much love,

P.S. Toronto's Metropolitan population is 4,682,897

josh. Toronto is very big.

Ottawa has 808,391 people
but my little old highschool city of saskatoon has only 196,811 people.. and might i just point out that the whole province of Saskatchewan has only 978,933 people. Way less than toronto. that is a lot of land for a few people.
