Yep...

As discussed on here before;
The population density in Canada looks low because of all the empty land, but in reality with I believe 81% living in a urban areas, for most people in Canada the real population density is going to be higher here ( 25% of Canada population live in the greater GTA (golden horse shoe)

maybe so but it certainly feels there is a lot more space around here than when you are living in London (UK) IMO.

There is more space outside of the city, but in large parts the local density will be higher, think of all those big down town condos

London UK 1336 people /km2

Toronto CAN 3972 people /km2 that was in 2006

Yeah, but it also depends on what the definitions are:

Is London defined as Zone 1, Zones 1- 6 or Greater London, which includes country bits.

Is Toronto defined as City of Toronto, Toronto Municipality or GTA.

Not really comparing like with like IMO, also parts of London - like the city are very depopulated. IIRC when I worked in the big smoke the City of London was classed as completely non-residential. This clearly has an impact on density and compare that to Toronto's financial district where bankers work cheek by jowl with residents...

I would wonder if the massive parks in central london would have any effect on the numbers as well - Hyde Park, St James's, Regents Park etc are there any big parks in DT Toronto? High Park perhaps?

Canada also has another unusual population distribution quirk: 90% of Canadians live within 100 miles of ..... ?

Are you sure? ..... I was wondering why more people don't live in the North West Territories?
