Queen of the Furrows references


Furrows are the long lines made in fields by farming implements such as hoes and ploughs.

It's also common to describe someone scowling or questioning as "furrowing their brow" as the lines on a human forehead are also called furrows.

This could be an unhappy Queen or plowing royalty.

Jonathan Kade points out that the "Queen of the Furrow" is actually a crown awarded annually to an agriculturally minded young woman in rural Ontario.

"...Win Toronto!"

Toronto, Ontario lays roughly 250km's from The Hip's native Kingston.

"Toronto is the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. With over 2.5 million residents, it is the fifth most populous municipality in North America. Toronto is at the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and is part of a densely populated region in Southern Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe, which is home to 8.1 million residents and has approximately 25% of Canada's population. The census metropolitan area (CMA) had a population of 5,113,149, and the Greater Toronto Area had a population of 5,555,912 in the 2006 Census.

As Canada's economic capital, Toronto is considered a global city and is one of the top financial centres in the world. Toronto's leading economic sectors include finance, business services, telecommunications, aerospace, transportation, media, arts, film, television production, publishing, software production, medical research, education, tourism and sports industries. The Toronto Stock Exchange, the world's seventh largest, is headquartered in the city, along with a majority of Canada's corporations.

Toronto's population is cosmopolitan and international, reflecting its role as an important destination for immigrants to Canada. Toronto is one of the world's most diverse cities by percentage of non-native-born residents, as about 49% of the population were born outside of Canada."
