It's a pronunciation post. I was told yesterday that people from Toronto call their city Toronno. True???

Not exactly and not universally, in common speech the second t is quite de-emphasised and the "toe" and "no" sounds are quite similar so with some people this does wind up sounding like Toronno, de-emphasis of the first o is also common so you sometimes get something sounding more like Tronno or Tronto. The last sound is always a "o" sound though, never an "aw" sound. If you hear Taranaw it's a poser trying to pass.
