I've always thought Toronto had a more appealing climate. Yeah, the winters are cold, but the other 7-9 months of the year are very pleasant and mild for the most part. I like snow anyway. The rainfall is distributed better too, coming more in spurts rather than the constant dampness one gets in Vancouver, and the summers are wetter and lusher than Vancouver not to mention more reliably warm.

I don't know what Vancouver weather is like (not fond of rainy climates), but you are too kind with Toronto weather. It is closer to 6 months of unpleasant weather (around Nov to end of April), and 6 months of fragile, semi-pleasant weather with constantly interrupted sunshine.

Definitely Vancouver weather for me. I prefer almost everything else about Toronto as a city to Vancouver, but weather is definitely not one of those things.

Have you lived in the Pacific Northwest at all? I've lived here nearly a decade and a half (in Oregon, not BC, but it's the same climate almost) and while I tolerate it better than most people, I don't think people really understand how dismal it can be. It's not super cold, but it's just as lacking of warm weather as Ontario and Minnesota, not to mention much gloomier. By warm meaning 16C or warmer.

Yeah i think even though winter really sucks in Toronto and much of the N.E and midwest of the U.S - i prefer the hotter summers in Toronto on the whole..

Compromise, - Vancouver from November to March - Toronto April to October

Have you lived in Toronto at all? Toronto gets 2066 hours of sunshine annually.

Toronto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vancouver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vancouver somewhat less, however sunshine is more concentrated in the summer when days are long due to high latitude. But Portland and Seattle are a bit sunnier than Vancouver. [Not using US station links as their measurement method is different]. Either way, much gloomier is a stretch. Toronto is more similar to the Pacific Northwest sunshine-wise than it is to Minnesota. Much of the Great Lakes region isn't that sunny. While it's cloudier in the winter, you can actually see some things growing in the Pacific Northwest. In Toronto, or similar climates in the region, it's bare and dead looking for many months on end.

Don't kid yourself, Vancouver weather is much better. The winters in Toronto suck and don't make up for the nice summers.

Way too much road salt is applied to the GTA roads in the winter and the roads are completely uneven (full of potholes). Not to mention that a small snow storm brings the GTA to it's knees.
