City State stretches from WWII to the mega-city at the turn of the millennium. War transforms Toronto into a training and munitions capital, brings women into the factories and makes Wayne & Shuster stars as they entertain the troops across the sea. War also turns against local Italians suspected of Fascist sympathies. As troops return home, the inner city is crumbling. Toronto erects its first housing project, amalgamates its burroughs into North America's first metropolitan city and launches the country's first subway. Fifteen year old Marilyn Bell becomes a national hero when she swims Lake Ontario. Then Hurricane Hazel rips the place apart.
