A Toronto resident.
I disliked the fact that they forgot to put Toronto as the largest city in Canada in the Nations section. What a terrible oversight not to even put the country’s biggest city in their list of largest cities.

My mother used to buy these for all the family. My sister and I have continued the tradition. These days the book should come with a magnifying glass. Anyone over the age of fifty can’t read the tiny print.
This is a gift for someone who gets it every year.

Was worried it would be too giant but it's not. Print is extremely small tho.

One of the books was received with the cover page torn. At this time, we are unable to return it by designated time and get a replacement. It was packed with the second book, plus some other items. One of the other items appeared to catch on the book and tear it. These are presents I give every year. I am just disappointed this year that one of my recipients will receive a torn cover.
