Is that I do not have to discuss politics in daily life. this is very different then down south (where every taxi driver has THEIR opinion on dont ask/dont tell) or in Montreal (where people keep on chattering endlessly about French-Canadian culture). As someone who holds unpopular views I find the city extremely liberating. I can count on my hand the number of times I have had a political conversation since x-mas!!!

It's 150 miles away and I only have to go there for the airport and the odd Jays game?

I miss chatting about politics! I find it irritating that people talk about the weather or sports or "what did you do over the weekend?" but refuse to have any REAL conversations that could result in argument. I live to argue!

Montreal is much more "me" in that regard. The passive-aggressive nature of the Torontonian never has worked well with me.
