        I literally only know “timmies” and “eh” other than that none of those words have been used within a 100k distance of me. And also the way she pronounces a lot of these slang words would be considered very racist in my community.

                    Nope. Must be a Toronto thing, because I've never heard of most of these as a Canadian.

                      I literally never heard any of these until I moved to Toronto. Now I can’t NOT hear them.

                        Ting is 100% Jamaican. Not really Toronto. My family says Ting. Literally no one I’ve know in Toronto that’s isn’t Caribbean says “Ting”

                        Yeah.... so the rest of Canada believes that Toronto is more US than Canadian. So, don't think that the rest of Canada is like this.
                        We aren't.

                          Also.... Toronto doesn’t make up for canadian slang. Because western Canada doesn’t use any of these slang words.

                                  This is specifically Afro-Caribbean Toronto slang. Not broadly Canadian, not even broadly Torontonian. It's why Lily Singh gets flack for appropriating.
