Your ID Please

How do you identify? As an Ontarian or as someone who lives in Toronto? As a 905er or a 416er? As someone who lives in 'the core' or someone who lives in the 'ring' around the core? As people try to describe the new political map of the country they are also striving to promote their particular views about urban identities. Listen to this short interview by Andy Barrie with Mayor Miller. It also serves as an example of a mayor's efforts to promote a notion of urban citizenship against a more dominant notion of provincial citizenship. (Update: sorry, interview no longer available. But it's always worth seeing what's on offer at Metro Morning).
