Nonsensical! Toronto garners more International visitor arrivals than Vancouver and Montreal - and actually trumps Sydney and Melbourne to boot according to this source:

http://blog.euromonitor.com/2013/01/...n-ranking.html

If you don't like Toronto - again you are free to feel that way but anyone who actually knows the city knows there are plenty of attractions, diversity, festivals and nabe's that are unique and appealing to many who visit.

So your opinion is your opinion and you are free to have it but don't profess to represent the majority of those who visit Toronto and tourism numbers prove it!

Toronto is just not seen as a very big tourist destination.

Vancouver is like Sydney- a lot of tourist attractions, nice to visit but not for longterm living while
Toronto is like Melbourne in terms of limited tourist attractions but a great city to live in longterm.

Melbourne boasts plenty for the tourist, although it not be iconically Australian. While it might come second for living Sydney is still a must visit.

I'm partial to Melbourne because I was born and raised here, though I've been thinking about moving to Sydney and attending USYD for university. I've been to Sydney several times, and I have no idea why Sydneysiders seem to assume us people from Melbourne have a chip on our shoulders about Sydney, I fully admit Sydney has nicer scenery than Melbourne, and the weather seems more stable there. I'd say Sydney is more expensive than Melbourne, but it wasn't too major imo.

I voted for Melbourne though, because I'm a Melbourne girl at heart and it just seems a much more cosmopolitan city (though some people take it too far and just come across as pretentious, wannabe wordly hipsters).

I know nothing about Toronto or Montreal, they don't really stand out to me and I don't particularly fancy Canadian weather. But I definitely wouldn't mind visiting there, especially Montreal due to the French influence which I find very interesting. Regarding about what each city has to offer, I'd say Montreal and Sydney seems to have more to offer to the international visitor but that's just my perspective.

Canada. I don't like very cold weather, but each to their own.

Montreal, Toronto and Melbourne would be a reasonable assumption.

I could do away with all of Canada! I love the US, it's my home, and Canada is just... "eh". Toronto's boring, Montreal is the same.
