Before 1998, Toronto proper was a much smaller municipality and formed part of the regional district of Metropolitan Toronto. When the city amalgamated that year, Toronto absorbed the former municipalities of York (York, Ontario), East York, North York, Etobicoke and Scarborough (Scarborough, Ontario). Each of these former municipalities still maintains a certain distinctness, and residents still use the names of these municipalities.

Many people criticised this change, which came on top of a massive "downloading" of provincial services to the municipal level, with little to no new revenue available. A plebiscite indicated that a majority of the citizens of Toronto opposed amalgamation, but criticisms were raised about the leading nature of the question asked. In Canada (and Ontario), plebiscites are not legally binding. The Province of Ontario (Ontario) under Premier Mike Harris had the power to ignore the result and did so.

By October 1, 1872, the first case occurred in Toronto. It took only three days before all the street car horses and major livery stables were affected.
