Slowly Becoming Canadian – Episode 20 – The Big Move

Former Amherstonian and new Torontonian, Joel Boyle, joins me to talk about moving from a small town in Nova Scotia to (according to the people who live there) the centre of the world: Toronto.

We discuss what it feels like to not know everybody in your city, how in Toronto – unlike in rural Nova Scotia – you can’t close Main Street for Prom, being a Sens fan in Leafs territory, and Bud Light and hot dogs (the Canadian equivalent to red wine and beef).
