Once again, the City of Toronto is providing key facts for sale to the public.
Key Facts 2004 is a compilation of the most up-to-date information highlighting
the socio-economic characteristics, physical infrastructure and municipal
services in the City of Toronto and the surrounding area. It provides a quick
reference of frequently used information for members of the public, the

activity, housing, environment and transportation. Readers can learn, for
example:
