The city of Toronto is a living example pluralism. Here, one can find over 140 languages and dialects being spoken on the streets. From Lebanese festivals to Caribbean festivals, from Chinatown to Little Italy, Toronto is a city symbolizing multiculturalism. Additionally, in this tremendously dynamic city, the University of Toronto, plays a key role in hosting cultural events and bringing together students and professors from around the world for the sake of education. Moreover, when speaking about 'living with differences' the human-animal relationship is also one aspect to consider. The busy citizens of Toronto, having to deal with extreme traffic and living in high-rise condos can still not give up their love towards animals. This photo tries to capture all these features in order to amplify living with differences!
