When I was first separated from my love in Toronto, I used to go to toronto.com and view the webcam that they had hooked up with a view from the top of the Panorama restaurant at Bay and Bloor. This was a cam that could be controlled over the internet and happened to be positioned so that you could see everything from Queen's Park to the CN Tower to the waterfront, to Younge Street. I could also clearly see my home from the cam. It helped me stay in touch.
When Panorama went through an exterior remodel, they took down the camera and never put it back up. I have missed having a live camera in Toronto ever since. It was great that I could see home from it, but more important that it was live - that I could see the city right now. I already knew what that heat felt like, or how the snow would howl through the skyscrapers...how tough it was to get to Spring Rolls when the Pride Parade was going on...With the cam, I could see it still as well.
I promise, when I finally return home to stay, I am going to set up a live webcam that you can control, so you too can see what's happening in Toronto right now. It may not have the view from Panorama, but it will still help you connect.
