blogTO is reporting that a new lobbying file has been opened with CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), which could create a brand new top-level domain code specifically for the City of Toronto. The lobbying file was opened on March 31st, the application claiming:

“CIRA will be discussing the merits for the City of Toronto to apply or not to apply for the .TORONTO top-level domain when the next application round is opened by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.”
