I agree but in terms of imagery?


Most people think of frozen northern landscapes and spectacular mountains when they think of Canada, but our big cities like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver get way more visitors.

Melburnians seem more Euro (a lot of S.Europeans) than Torontoans, despite the fact Toronto has a lot of Europeans as well.
I thought Toronto would be a Canadian version of New York, but it was absolutely boring and dreary.

A lot of people don't know how really big Canada is either. If you are visiting Montreal or Toronto you're not going to be driving out to see the Rockies with a 1 week vacation. Heck it would be a challenge to do that with 2 weeks - Looong drives. For us it is less flight time to go to Cuba than Vancouver lol.. Cheaper too!

Sydney and Melbourne, along with Miami, Tel-Aviv, London, Tokyo, and Hong Kong are my Elite-7 (my 7 favorite cities). So of course Melbourne and Sydney are at the tip top of my list here when pitted against Montreal and Toronto. I would say my love for Melbourne and Sydney is on equal footing, they appeal to me for different aspects that I like in a city. They are a perfect complementary set, in my belief.

I will have to take a pass on both Canadian cities. I don't have any interest in ever living in either of them, Vancouver is the one in Canada that I would want for that. That being said, I have been to both Montreal and Toronto and both are solid cities and I loved crossing both off of my "world travels" list after seeing them both. I don't plan to revisit them again, however, unless I really have to - it is no offense but I would rather invest my time and funds in seeing a new city somewhere else on the planet or revisiting a city that I truly have an affinity towards at a personal level.

Felt like a more multicultural version of Melbourne to me.
