Best answer: I live in the Toronto suburbs. Toronto and Montreal both have highly educated populations and Toronto is the largest city in Canada (and would easily be a top-10 city if you counted North America as a whole). As for Amazon, I wouldn't touch it with a 40 foot pole. The city's proposal is nothing but corporate welfare and giveaways. Transportation and traffic, combined with housing costs, are the biggest issues the city and the area are facing. Mayor Tory's proposal doesn't really do much of anything to address this. He's better than his predecessor (Rob Ford) because he's not a crack addict running around like an imbecile but isn't really tackling the heavy lifting (he's good at doing photo ops). Trudeau seems a nice person and he is more charming than his predecessor (again, low bar to clear). UBER is a financial disaster built on a business model so bad that I have to wonder why any sane person would want to do business with them (they're bleeding money, their entire business model is a failure pile- they don't charge enough for their rides, the drivers are unregulated, the company lost more money than their entire revenue (this is nearly impossible to do), and the more people learn about the inner workings the worse they look). Toronto isn't as crazy compared to Silicon Valley or Vancouver real estate prices.
Again- Trudeau's shortcomings are within what I call the acceptable "standard deviation" for politicians (he's a bit on the dishonest side and follow-through on promises aren't exactly his strong suit, but I think that fundamentally he wants what's best for the country). He's not his father, but he's charming and easy on the eyes if that's your thing.
For Americans, they elected an imbecile who doesn't seem to be able to read or concentrate for more than a few minutes, is completely untrustworthy (going off of 40 years of business deals), a financial disaster, a compulsive liar, corrupt on levels you can't comprehend (there's a reason he hasn't released his tax returns because he doesn't want people to know how in debt he really is and who owns that debt), and quite probably compromised by the Russians (his sons are actually worse having met them- easily two of the worst excuse for human beings on the planet).
