I'd prefer Vancouver's winter to Toronto's frigid winters, especially during last year when they had a warmer than average winter while we completely froze here in TO.

In that case, there are not many cities that actually have real winters in the world. There are not really many cities in the world that receive as much snow as Toronto out there. Even Moscow/St Petersburg only has slightly more snow than TO. Beijing China receives less snow than Vancouver and Victoria - must be a city with no winter!

I wonder why people invented the word "winter" when only a limited numbers of cities have real ones.

But isn't TO's winter much sunnier than Van's?

I'm pretty sure most people think of snow when they hear winter. Just do a google image search of "winter" and you will see pictures after pictures of huge fluffy snow. I never said no snow isn't a winter. I said no snow isn't a real winter for me.

Most likely but T.O is definitely quite a bit colder in the winter than Vancouver. Actually overcast days in the winter are a bit warmer than those crisp, clear and freeeezing cold days! The sun doesn't seem to help much at all on those days.

Yes, Toronto's winters are much sunnier than Vancouver's. The Vancouver area has the cloudiest winters in all of Canada.

yep those sunny days are usually the coldest days at the same time, and that's not a coincident. Personally I prefer warmer and cloudy.

Toronto as whole is still colder in the winter than Oslo as a whole - since you're using Toronto's downtown urban heat index hotspot which really isn't used by any major network or newspaper. The official station is Pearson airport.

Vancouver has a moderate climate compared to Toronto with pleasant summers and tolerable winters. Toronto, in contrast has average rainfall but receives more snowfall than Vancouver. The temperature in the summers can go as high as 28–30 degrees and an extreme -5 to -7 degrees in the winters maybe more.

Toronto's extremes are actually much more intense than that. Most days in summer are in the upper 20s at least and with humidity the vast majority of days feel like 30C or more.

Extreme days (which occur with some regularity) in the summer are in the 35C range with humidex going over 40 and sometimes even in the upper 40s.

In the winter -5 to -7 would be a cold daytime high but again that would not be in the extreme.

Toronto can get daytime highs no warmer than -10 or even -15 in the winter. Not every day of course but most winters will have at least some days that are that cold.
