Why do Americans refer to Toronto as Toronto, Canada and not Toronto Ontario, or Toronto Ontario Canada.</strong><hr></blockquote>
For me, it's Tornonta Canada the way it's London, England or Dublin, Ireland. The "default" for an American is to assume that a city is in the USA unless the country is specified, and in the name of expediency we leave the province out. No offence intended.
