With its swelling and diverse population, it is also a harbinger for how new demographic trends will reshape Canada.

Mayor Rob Ford urged Toronto Real Estate Board members to help him persuade city councillors to start phasing out the "dreaded" municipal land transfer tax. The tax, which costs buyers of the average home about $10,000, generated $344.5 million for civic coffers in 2012. That was $56.2 million more than projected, due to the higher number and value of homes sold in the city last year.
