Logs Floating On Water

"Toronto" is an aboriginal word, but few agree on its specific meaning. According to The Terrific Toronto Trivia Book, likely published in an Annex basement in 1979, the five most accepted translations are:

  • Timber in the water
  • Logs floating on the water
  • A place of plenty
  • Place where trees stand in the water
  • Gateway from Lake Ontario to the country of the Hurons

On a completely unrelated note, a very Happy Birthday to the Duck, who turns 23 today. All the best!

The Duck is 23? Get that man a cardigan and a pipe.
