Toronto is a vibrant city, and in many ways as American as some of its neighbours to the south, mainly in Michigan. Along with Michigan, Toronto has a thriving automobile and auto parts industry, allowing for a lot of exchange between US car manufacturers across the border.
Toronto is situated on the northern shore of Lake Ontario (the most eastern of the Great Lakes), and is one of the southernmost cities in Canada.
