    Fact
    The population of the Greater Toronto Area, at around 5.9million, is more than twice that of the US State of Kansas, at 2.7million. No doubt, this fact keeps up Kansas farmers at night, standing a lonely vigil with their scarecrows and their buggies.

    Fact: The name Toronto is likely derived from the Iroquois word tkaronto, meaning "place where trees stand in the water".
