The entry claims that there is a Chinatown in toronto that is Pan asian. It couldn't be further from the truth. There are two chinatowns infact, and both are Cantonese centers entirely. There is a very separate Korean Business District, and no relevant center for Japanese culture. there are sevearl pockets of about 2 or 3 japanese stores near one another throught the city.

It is a shame to get such incorrect information in this hypothetically superlative guide.

Ooops, my mistake.. I forgot, that Chinatown West (Spadina's Chinatown) is also a center for Vietnamese culture in Toronto. Perhaps this is what lead to he misaprehension that it was "pan" asian.

There's a Chinatown on Spadina and a bit of Dundas.
There's a Chinatown on Broadview and a bit of Gerrard.
There's another Chinatown in Scarberia.
I don't know how the Canadians of Vietnamese heritage have settled. There are many on Spadina.
According to some people I know in the Sunsei theatre community, Canadians of Japanese heritage never really wanted to concentrate themselves into one neighbourhood after learning about the internment camps. Ani.
