Fact or Factoid #3

FACT OR FACTOID: The media in Canada have often reported that Toronto was named by UNESCO as the most multicultural city in the world.

RESOLUTION: While Toronto may be one of the world’s most diverse cities, the United Nations agency has never designated any city as being the most multicultural or diverse. As with other factoids, the belief in this status persisted for years, even finding its way onto UNESCO’s web site, into the pages of the New York Times, and into international media reports related to Toronto’s two Olympic bids.
