US and Canadian cities among the best? What's next? Finland? Norway?

I'm gonna go with France and Italy. And here's a wild card: Croatia.

Dunno about Vienna and Auckland, but the Helsinki region creates ~33% of Finnish GDP, and the Copenhagen region over 40% of Danish GDP.

Italy and France would be my choices too.

US and Canadian cities are mostly fine but LOL at them being the world's best collection(s).

I think France has way better second tier cities than the UK after the metropolis-capital level.

Though I find London and Paris fairly equal.

Of course Italy and France (Germany and Spain have their fair bunch, too), and then the most populated countries (USA, Brazil, China, etc) for obvious reason.

IDK much about Canadian cities, but at least Calgary and especially Winnipeg seems to be 10000 times more boring than little Turku.

Yes and Finland has Lahti. These two probably battle for the ultimate best city in the universe.
