Earlier on Thursday, Amazon, the world’s largest e-commerce company, announced a $5 billion (3.83 billion pounds) expansion plan that would generate 50,000 new jobs.

“I firmly believe that Toronto is a prime candidate to host Amazon’s second headquarters in North America. I will be leading the charge to make the case that Amazon should call Toronto home,” Mayor John Tory said in a statement.
