Toronto has the coldest climate.......a bit colder than new York's winters and summers are the same as NYC. Vancouver and London have the rainest climates and Sydney the best. Many people I know who moved to Australia moved back because they didn't like the isolation because it doesn't matter where you are in Australia you really are in the middle of no where.

If whether is your thing then Sydney and outdoors Sydney and Vancouver. If you are a big city person obviously London but Toronto is a more liveable and relaxed atmosphere as is Canadian society over Australia or Britain both of which are more conservative.
Toronto is decidedly colder in winter and not as hot in summer as NYC. In January it's -6C in Toronto and 0C in NYC. In July 21C in Toronto and 24C in NYC. NYC can feel pretty hot with the humidity in summer.

Sydney actually has cooler summers than Sydney, another plus.

Australian cities seem to be good for a quiete type lifestyle.
If you want a big city life it's London.
Australian cities are very small and feel very rural compared to the big European cities.
I'm referring to the central cores of the cities.
Australia is also so far away.
I live in Denmark which has crap weather.
But I holiday alot in Spain , Italy, France, Greece every year.
And I'll go to cities such as Madrid,Barcelona,London, Milan , Paris etc. to watch the Football on multiple occasions every year for next to nothing.
You can't do that living in Australia.
I've been holidaying in Melbourne ,Australia visiting friends for nearly 3 weeks. About to check out Sydney.
I couldn't live in Australia from what I've seen of Melbourne so far.
I love big dynamic cities.
Melbourne is a bit too quite for my liking.
Shops close very early.
That's just me.
You may think otherwise.
