for those of you who don’t live in Toronto, or just haven’t noticed, the CN Tower lights up gold when Canada wins a gold medal. so thus far it’s been 4 times…hoping to see more golden skies soon.
in other celebration of winning gold, Air Canada has special one-day-only discounts! on Feb 14th flights were 15% off and on Feb 16th 20% off. i’m not sure if the promo continued with yesterday’s win, but i’m predicting that the discount price will not continue to increase (because Air Canada is selfish and cheap), or that Air Canada doesn’t have much hope in the Canadian team, and figures 20-25% off is the most they will have to offer.
well it is a sad day for us Torontonians (if i am even really considered one). for years we have held onto this title, and could use this big/little fact as a way to place ourselves on the map against other more cultured and pretty foreign cities… but now it is gone.
the Burj Dubai, is now the tallest building in the world, standing at 800+ meters high! our poor little CN Tower has now fallen short by 247 meters. for some reason boasting to others that my city has the 2nd tallest structure in the world, doesn’t really strike much appeal…i guess size really does matter.
and all around Toronto egos are being crushed, one meter at a time…
