Yes, close to record lows for this date in Ontario and Quebec.


It's not uncommon to get a dusting of snow at this time of year (even in late October sometimes) but for it to be this cold this early is extremely rare.


I don't think it will be lasting long, though.


Just to give you an idea it's 2C in NYC right now and feels like -2C.


Tonight with the wind chill it will feel like -12C or about 11F in NYC.


And we're not even in mid-November yet.

yeah, 2c max in early november in NYC is quite something too. Apparently it should return to normal conditions.

That said, I'd probably take a sunny 2c there over our super humid overcast 10c average november day

At least the weather there is varied...

That's totally not the point. You should read my previous posts regarding the poor structure of the OP's question. The problem lies with the OP (and funnily, the guy is now banned). This has nothing to do with the other posts in this thread.

The the title says "which is more urban", and the body of the question is on about vibrancy and walkability: Does the OP mean which is more urban or which is more vibrant and walkable? These are all mutually exclusive. Toronto may be more urbane, but Sydney can be far more vibrant for many other people.

P.S. Since my last post, Sydney has gotten more votes btw.

Wouldn't get too hung up on votes imo. They're merely the opinions of people, regardless of which way it goes. Besides you have to wonder how many people who voted has actually been to both cities, regardless of what they voted for

I agree that the OP was poorly formulated but not sure Sydney is clearly way more vibrant than Toronto.

I would agree that Sydney as a smaller city does punch above its weight in this respect. This is due to the better urban structure over a wider area that I alluded to in an earlier post. That's why I think the two cities compare quite favourably to each other in terms of vibrancy.
