Damn You, John Graves Simcoe | Toronto Standard |

Ivor Tossell has a wonderful piece lampooning Simcoe, who we can thank for the upcoming civic holiday and Toronto’s miserable location. Musing on such things as the past week’s heat wave Tossell notes that many places have miserable climates, but no one to blame for them,

But no, not us. On days like today, fellow Torontonians, it is helpful to remember that this miserable weather came about not by chance, but because a man stuck his finger on a map and said, “here.” This was John Graves Simcoe’s plan. Now it’s 38 degrees outside and here we all are, stuck. I blame John Graves Simcoe.
