This clearly city vs city and therefore not allowed. It will lead to a lot of flaming.

Toronto better skyline,

Sydney better climate and environment or natural beauty.


For the last time the best Toronto shots are from Midtown...

o god, another sydney vs. toronto thread ? considering that i've lived in both cities for a while, i dread the mention of this topic. they're both damn good cities, period. the voice of reason, lol.

still, i hate to say it, but it seems to be one of the hottest rivalries on this board.
