Best way I can describe it, especially from travelling and spending time in other places...
Toronto is like Minneapolis (standoffish, affluence, highly educated workforce) + Seattle (diversity in population and in creative talent/jobs) + Phoenix (diversity in languages spoken and the amount of people you'll meet who were born outside the country). It's a wonderful mixture of so many places.

Is Chicago as liberal as Toronto? I have the feeling it very well might be. I have the feeling Vancouver might be even more liberal, and that politically, a closer match would be Seattle or San Fran.

I would say Chicago. Both are large diverse cities on a great lake and a similar climate.
