Amazon’s HQ and Toronto: a good, if unlikely, fit

Toronto has made the shortlist of 20 cities which Amazon is considering for its second headquarters in North America, and the only Canadian entrant. This is fitting given its’ status as the 4th largest North American city and the largest Canadian city. So is it just the token Canadian, or is it actually in the running?

To answer this question, I’ll refer back to the list of attributes I thought would be important to Amazon earlier when assessing Calgary and add a couple.
