Not bad.. couldn't really disagree with any up there. I'd add in:

Regina - Austin
Hamilton - Pittsburgh

Regina like Austin? No way. Been to both places and Austin TX is way better than Regina.
Winnipeg like Minneapolis? Nope. Winnipeg is not nearly as cosmopolitan as Minneapolis. But it probably is as cold, or colder. It is an overgrown cow town with tons of restaurants and bookstores. The weather is awful and the wind. Oh, I remember winds howling all year long.

Blah.

I said Winnepeg is equivalent to Kansas City, and Edmonton is equivalent to Minneapolis.

I would say Toronto and Minneapolis, except Toronto is more cosmopolitan and you can feel it's the heart of a nation.

How is Hamilton more like Cleveland than Pittsburgh.. Cleveland was not a steel city like Pittsburgh was, it's more into auto-manufacturing. Also i would like to know how Edmonton is like Nashville.

It's just..... better? Care to expand on why the "betterment" differs in the similarities with the cities?

Cleveland was not a steel city?

- Home to LTV: The Nations 3rd largest Steel maker and 2nd largest producer of flat rolled steel.

- Jones and Laughlin Steel company (based in Pittsburgh) moved into the Midwest Market by acquiring Otis J&L and making the Cleveland location the second largest operations in the United States.

- Jones Day (The worlds 8th largest law firm) was to "go-to" law firm for the Steel Industry in the mid 1900's. JOnes Day originated in Cleveland, OH.

Cleveland may have not been Steel City the way Pittsburgh was, but it was a major player, if not the number 2 behind Pittsburgh. The Steel Industry for many years had a larger share of Cleveland's GDP than the Auto-Industry.

Now the comparison more comes from what each city is today with a view to its history. Pittsburgh has done a much better job of diversifying its economy since the decline of Manufacturing than Hamilton and Cleveland.

Pittsburgh has shifted its focus to High Tech, tourism and services while both Hamilton and Cleveland have focused on Medical Research (Cleveland Clinic and McMaster University)

As far as Edmonton and Nashville are concerned I will reply later when I have a little more time, but the parallels between Cleveland and Hamilton are striking.
