North Toronto is not North Bay

It's been said men don't like to ask for directions.  As it turns out, they're also averse to knowing anything about geography, period.

When talking to a guy about where in the city he lives in, he gave "north" as a general area.  I ask a few more questions about proximity. 

North, as in past Eglinton?  This area is known as mid-town.

Past Lawrence?  This area is uptown. 

Past Finch? This is now considered to be North York, which is no longer part of the city's core. 

Is it even Toronto??

And when I probe further, I get the actual location:  North Bay.

For those not knowledgeable in Ontario's geography, it's akin to saying you're Australian people assume you mean Sydney when it's really Melbourne (which is on the other side of the island).

Now, I've never been the best person when it comes to directions (I still don't know where the hell the north star is in the sky), but this guy needs to acquaint himself with a map.
