This CN Tower Time-Lapse Will Show You Toronto's Whimsical Side


There's no shortage of nicknames to describe Toronto. "The Big Smoke", "Hogtown" and if you ask certain Drake fans, "The 6" are all viable terms.

But while each of those touch on Toronto's history, none really seem to acknowledge how pretty Toronto actually is. Good thing for time-lapses. Shot from the top of the CN Tower, this video captures Toronto's QEW and the island on a sunny day.

Give the video a watch and let us know what you think in the comments below.
