I was skating on the Rideau Canal the other day and actually found myself in a warm-up chalet with a bunch of Aussies and their kids!
I'm kidding .I agree, but -33... yikes

What a stupid thing to say! Just because someone may prefer Toronto, they must have never been to the other cities? Why would you even say something like that???

Wow, you've lost any credibility you may have had with this ridiculous statement! And this from someone who has admitted that he has never even stepped foot in Toronto! You seem to be threatened by Toronto by so many of your statements.

FYI Trimac is long gone as a poster. I believe he was on here for a while as ThePostman as well. Long gone also.

He never was a big fan of Canada.

Well Sydney definately is more beautiful than Toronto that is for sure.. Toronto is a city with depth and layers though and for those who know it, very interesting so take it for what it was worth, from someone who looks at superficial layers and concludes that that is the whole fruit...

Come on you are one of the biggest supporters of Toronto on this forum and you think Sydney is more beautiful than Toronto?
To me Toronto as in the actual city is way more nicer looking, natural scenery is only slightly better in Sydney (because of the waterfront) Toronto is more lush and green though.

I've been to all 4 cities and I'd rank them personally:

Sydney
Melbourne
Montreal
Toronto

They are all top notch cities though...
