How do you think they have the ability to sustain ~20 subway lines (while Toronto barely has 3) with hundreds of stations, if not by having higher density than most of Toronto?
If Toronto is out of lands, we would be converting those houses/town or town houses into high rise apartments.
Our population density is low compared to asia even Vancouver.
