I would consider Toronto a warm temperate climate, but not subtropical.

Toronto has nice warm summers, but I think warm temperate is a bit generous.

Somewhere like Melbourne or Auckland would be warm temperate.

I'm sure in the past 100 years we've had a Feburary that was colder than Janurary..

Besides Toronto is close in proximity to massive bodies of water, which can quickly alter the conditions..

Case in point is that Toronto's climate is generally almost the same the past 100yrs

Warm temperate is generous. I like "humid continental" better myself, but it isn't really warm temperate (the winters are cold) and it isn't really cool temperate (the summers are hot. Temperate temperate, maybe? If you're using the broader definition of temperate, anyway. Warm temperate to me conjures up images of some place like the Isles of Scilly.

I think it's a warm summer climate. Hot would be somewhere Phoenix or Bakersfield. Cool summer is somewhere like London or where I live.

Scilly wasn't quite what I had in mind. I would consider it cool temperate, same as where I live.

London isn't really cool summer, i'd say warm summer just about anyway. London regulary goes up to 25C and thats not cool - no sea breeze to temper anything also

I would consider all of the UK and NZ to be cool summer climates. London's summer maximum is only the same as here, despite the sea breeze.
