REMARKABLE! TORONTO MAKES THE SHORT LIST FOR AMAZON’S HQ2

Toronto. Los Angeles. New York. Atlanta. Denver. What do these cities have in common? They are among a distinguished group representing the short list for Amazon’s next headquarters. Announced last month, the list of 20 cities includes a single Canadian entry (beating out 11 other bids north of the border, including Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Halifax, and Montreal, and selected from 238 submissions in total) – kudos to the 6ix! Earlier this month, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, giving credence to the rumours that Canada’s business capital is a serious contender for HQ2.

Andy Williams might have sung, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year,” but personally we think it’s the most remarkable. It’s the time of year when friends and families gather close together, when chilly nights are warmed by sparkling lights, when hot cocoa is a perfectly acceptable after-dinner drink, and when “hygge” gives us all an excuse to snuggle under a blanket and get cozy.
