I give Skytrain the benefit of the doubt.
I would consider that to be the equivalent of Melbourne's Metlink Suburb/City Loop Rail, Brisbane's CityTrains, and Sydney's CityRail network. All 3 are suburb-based transit systems with a small number of underground stations. Toronto and Montreal equivalents to some extent would be GO Transit and AMT.

Perth also has a train network, but I've never been on it, so I don't know how expansive the network is.

Well, Canada obviously has more, which isn't surprising seeing as it has both a higher population and a larger land area, but I think the edge should be given to the one with the highest quality.

That being said, I think all Can/Aus "comparisons" should be banned here, because they're nothing but trouble.

I theorise that Torontos and Eastern Canada's road network in general is a direct byproduct of being across the road from the US. However not all Canada cities have such a road network.

Look at Vancouver. It's canada's 3rd largest city and apparently they have only 1 or 2 lengths of freeway.

Vancouver is really the only exception to the rule. Despite the generally better road network in Canada all the cities have higher transit ridership than their Aussie equivalent.
