Lets compare North America's northermost city with metro population of over 1,000,000 with the largest city in Europe - Moscow.
Which climate do you like more, if weather was the only factor, would you live in Edmonton or Moscow?

Moscow - warmer summers; less severe winters. Still both D climates, as Dsb climates nearly always are for me.

Neither is a good climate. I'd say Moscow since it's somewhat warmer.

It's a tough choice, but I'd go with Edmonton. Despite the chinook winds and hence higher record highs in winter, it averages colder and more variable than Moscow. It also has a lower record low. Summer nights in Edmonton are cooler than Moscow, as are the summer record highs. It has less moisture in winter than Moscow does, and I guess it has less snow than Moscow. Edmonton is also sunnier. But in the end Edmonton wins out, despite some advantages that Moscow offers.

Moscow, as it has superior summers and less severe winters. It's also less dry and has more spread out precipitation.
