Do you think Toronto and Melbourne should become sister cities and if so what benefits would you like to see flow on from this relationship ?
The feeling is mutual. It's absurd how few ties we have to Australia considering how much we have in common. There is actually a massive amount of collaboration that goes on between our 2 countries, but the vast majority of it is invisible to the general public. There are countless government trips, business trade missions, and consultations on every issue imaginable. What is missing, is some cultural bond that the public can relate to.I would like to see us have a better relationship with Canada, both countries having similarities. I don't, however want Melbourne to have 50000 sister cities. It needs to stay kinda exclusive
