I'm living in Toronto, and fairly inexpensively at that -- $1200/mo for a 2 bedroom -- though it involves putting up with the odd cockroach and a tiny kitchen. On the bright side, we have tons of natural light and an awesome view of the CN Tower in the distance.
I'm currently learning how to jar seasonal produce to preserve the harvest for the colder months. I also subscribe to a CSA that brings me a box of fresh, local produce and a dozen free-range, small-flock eggs every other week.
I'd also like to meet like-minded people, in Toronto or in the GTA (I'm originally from Burlington).
