Mayor David Miller’s five favourite things to do in Toronto:

1. Attending a Toronto FC game at BMO Field. “Fantastic. Packed, showing the face of Toronto, people from every background, all on the same team. Not only that, this year when you go to a TFC game you’re going to see the team that’s going to win the championship of MLS.”

2. Taking the ferry ride over from Toronto Island. “My former number one, now number two, is taking the ferry ride over from the Island, particularly towards sunset. It is fabulous.”

3. Running across the Humber River pedestrian/cycling bridge and adjacent path. “That beautiful, curved arched bridge in the west end of Toronto, and it’s running across there, which I do at least a couple of times a week. Rain, snow, sleet, it doesn’t matter. It gives you a different sense of Toronto, you see downtown, you’re connected to the lake. It’s fantastic.”

4. Going to a sporting event with his kids. “My son’s hockey games, my daughter’s soccer games. She’s the goalie and last year in the league championship, it went to penalty shots and she stopped them all. There is nothing like being part of that, community sports, and seeing your child succeed. I used to be a striker in soccer, so to see my daughter be a goalie – whoa!”

5. Going to a neighbourhood restaurant, pub or coffee shop and talking or listening to Torontonians.  “I could pick lots of (places). I don’t want to pick just one. Everybody has their favourite spot. We’re a city of neighbourhoods, and if you go to one of those public places – the coffee shops, the pubs, the little restaurants, and the public libraries. Those are places where Torontonians get together and become Torontonians. All those neighbourhoods are alive and that’s what Toronto’s all about.”
