I WOULD LOVE TORONTO, IF THE CLIMATE ACTUALLY FELT THAT WAY! (to me)

But to me, Toronto has:

Warmish summers with thunderstorms
Winters so cold it could rip your skin off your bones
Cold, dreary and sometimes snowy Falls and Springs (cool and sunny, when we're lucky)

I suppose to some people 45-59 F weather under mostly overcast skies would count as "Nice" or "Pleasant" Fall and Spring,
but for most people here we think it's kind of gross usually.

*Example: No one would "love" to have a picnic in our typical Fall or Spring weather, outside of the earliest weeks in fall or the latest weeks in spring.

Most people here would call "Nice" Fall or Spring weather 60-70 F with sunshine "Nice," but that is not normal.
This kind of weather only happens in Spring or Fall when we have unusually warm and dry weather.

Is it "only" the case that weather in Toronto is unfavourable, or does it also matter that inhabitants of that Canadian city experience worse weather than most people in other developed countries (especially the USA, because the main comparison is probably with other North-American regions)?

If the latter is the case, than maybe it helps that in the ‘other’ continent (i.e. Europe) circumstances are usually vastly worse. Many sites in Europe, like London or Amsterdam, does not have a ‘real’ summer. For most Europeans, moving is not an easy task, because that needs emigration and hence, learning a new language.

Could you agree that an average of 2038 sunshine hours per year or a daily high of 26,5°C in July (1961-1990) isn't that bad? Hence, the great question is whether absolute or relative figures matter.

Toronto doesn't average that much sunshine...
The numbers are more like 1900 hours.
Ottawa away from the Great Lakes gets over 2000 hours, but also a lot more cold.
London Ontario about 2 hours west gets 1800 hours of sunshine and is quite the soggy and snowy place.
We're somewhere in between.

I'd like zero summer days below 27 C, so I suppose I'll need to immigrate.

Piazza, I don't know the answer to your question, but I can say that the weather where Cold Canadian lives isn't that pleasant. We had exchanged a DM at one time for the specific places that he and I live. We did a weather comparison and my weather in So. Dak. is actually worse then his. If I remember correctly, my summers are warmer, but my winters are also colder. And you probably know that I don't even live in the very coldest part of the U.S. No. Dak., Wyo., Mont., and Mn. are colder states then my own.

The problem for CC is that he can't relocate like many of us can. There are those of us who don't like the weather where we live~winter is my least fave here. But unfortunately some people just have a few more years until retiring from their employer or have family in their area so moving is just difficult.

True, I suppose I'm lucky there.

But then again it's also annoying that people who's speech is nearly identical to mine live in places like Hawaii, Florida, Arizona etc.; places where some residents complain about the persistant warmth/heat/sun and wishing to see snow, which to a Canadian sounds like they're living on a different planet. Sometimes I've wished I couldn't understand what they were saying, so it might make sense to why I live where I live.
