We always thought it was 'Centre of the Universe', but apparently Toronto has a new nickname. We'll see if it sticks, but we're partial to the classic T-Dot. Not that we want to second-guess the fine folks at Eye Weekly (or the fellow citizens of my town) but we think they missed a few obvious contenders.

Nicknames by Torontonians with too much hometown pride:

Super-Awesome-Ultra-World-Class-City
3 and a half Winnipeg's.
The Perfect Center of the Universe (including all quantum reality alternate universes).
Canada's Daddy (Or simply: Canadaddy)
New York of Canada, just without all the stuff.
Me Me Me Me.
The Big Double No-Fat Low-Foam Chai Latte.
Home of the Leafs

Nicknames for Toronto by people who hate Toronto:

TOR-suck-RON-suck-TO-suck
Not Montreal (insert any other better-loved city name here)
The Great Ravenous Mouth That Swallows Everything And Will Never Be Satisfied
Home of the Leafs...
