*After the near miss by the Armagedon Comet in 2645 which saw a vast depletion of water across the planet, humanity began to rebuild their cities.
What was previously known as the Great Lakes in central North America was now almost a desert, the planet had another wonder of the New World, a series of GRAND connected canyons.
The city of Toronto became the hub for all tourism
through the new canyons, and consequently grew by leaps and bounds.
And with the upheaval caused by the passing of the comet Earths moon was pushed into a very close orbit, resulting in the total destruction of most the worlds coastal cities.*
